Kathleen Potter, a substitute teacher in the area, is being hailed as a hero for her quick thinking when William Atchison entered Aztec High School with his gun, killing two students: Casey Jordan-Marquez and Francisco "Paco" Fernandez. The case was closed as he did not have a gun and had not committed a crime.
The small town of 7,000 was stunned by the tragedies and held a candleight vigil for the two young victims who had their whole lives ahead of them. Atchison lived at home with his parents and worked at a local gas station. Police say he had no criminal record.
Investigators told reporters that Atchinson entered the building around 8:00 a.m., blending in with the throng of students entering the building. Paco was shot dead before the murderer went into the hall and killed Casey Marquez. With the hallways mostly empty as the school day was underway, he headed for the door just as Fernandez entered the bathroom. That kid's a hero, ' said New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas.

Authorities do not believe anyone else was aware of the planned shooting.
World sucks, school sucks, life sucks.
"He was determined to create as much carnage as he could", Christiansen said, noting Fernandez's presence likely saved other students by triggering the attack prematurely.
According to CNN, the shooter had previously made comments online about planning a mass shooting - and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for those actions.
