Update #1 – 1423hrs 14 Nov., 2019
I want to update you regarding the incident that occurred this morning at approximately 9:47am when a NMMI cadet was injured in an off-campus shooting.
First, no cadets are in any danger. The incident is determined to be isolated in nature involving an unknown local individual, or individuals.
Second, upon returning to campus I spoke to the Corps of Cadets informing them of the incident and pointed out that:
1) They are in no danger;
2) The incident occurred off campus and it is under investigation by local police;
3) A lockdown is serious and cadets were observed not following the instruction;
4) Social media posting of inaccurate, false, incomplete and speculative information about any incident and individuals is irresponsible and becomes an impediment to providing factual and timely information to parents, faculty, staff, and the Corps of Cadets;
5) The school administration is the only source of factual information regarding the school and that information is continually being refined and updated as the situation develops.
Finally, as in all cases NMMI will conduct an After Action review of our response to the incident and make appropriate adjustments.
We will continue to keep you informed. ... See MoreSee Less
Today at approximately 9:47 AM, NMMI officials were notified of an isolated off-campus shooting incident involving two adult male NMMI cadets. No danger exists for other cadets who have been restricted to campus until further notice. One of the two cadets received a non-life threatening injury. He was treated at the NMMI infirmary and then transported to ENMMC for follow-up. It was reported that the shots were fired at the cadets while off campus from a passing automobile. The campus was placed on lock-down at approximately 9:55 AM. NM State Police, Roswell Police and Chaves County Sherriff’s office responded to the off-campus incident. NM State Police are in charge of the on-going investigation. MG Grizzle who was traveling at the time has been notified and is returning to campus.
