A student opened fire Tuesday morning at a middle school in the southeastern New Mexico city of Roswell, shooting two students before being taken into custody.

Officials at University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, say a 14-year-old boy was flown there in critical condition and a 13-year-old girl was en route in serious condition. Information from nurses treating the boy indicates he was the shooter's target, hospital spokesman Eric Finley said.

Police say the suspect opened fire at Berrendo Middle School as classes were starting for the day.

A student who witnessed the shooting said a male student shot the boy twice in the face and shot the girl in the arm.
