Official: 2 killed, 4 injured in Clovis shooting

Police say officers responded to the library this afternoon in response to a report of an active shooter.

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — The city manager tells a newspaper that two people were killed and four people were injured in a shooting inside a New Mexico public library.

Clovis police and elected officials also say that the shooter was taken into custody and was being questioned Monday.

City Manager Tom Phelps told The Eastern New Mexico News on Monday evening that three of the injured were taken to a hospital in Lubbock, Texas. Clovis, a city of about 40,000, is about 200 miles east of Albuquerque, near the Texas state line.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the two people who were killed.

Officials planned to release more information at a news conference Monday night at City Hall.
