Two people are dead and four others are injured after 16-year-old Nathaniel Jouett opened fire Monday afternoon at a public library in Clovis, New Mexico.

The incident occurred at Clovis-Carver Public library just after 4 p.m. According to local law enforcement, two women were found dead inside the library — two men and two women were injured.

Three of the victims were airlifted to to University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas. One of the injured females has been identified as Alexis Molina, a University of New Mexico senior in the College of Arts and Sciences.

After arriving on scene shortly after the active shooter call came in, Clovis police confronted and arrested Jouett inside the library. He did not fire any shots after police arrived.

“He gave up. He didn’t resist,” said Douglas Ford, Clovis Police Chief, at a news conference.

Wanda Walters, 61, and Kristina Carter, 48, died due to their injuries. Molina, 20, is wounded but in stable condition; Noah Molina, 10, and Howard Jones, 53, are wounded but in stable condition. The fourth victim, a woman, is also stable and asked not to be identified.

If you are a close friend or family member of Alexis Molina and would like to provide a statement to the Daily Lobo, please contact news@dailylobo.com.
