AZTEC – Students of a New Mexico high school are back in class more than a week after a deadly shooting on campus.
Aztec High School students and staff returned Monday and were greeted by residents of this small northwestern New Mexico community who lined the streets to welcome them.
Casey Jordan Marquez and 17-year-old Francisco “Paco” Fernandez were killed on Dec. 7 when a gunman disguised as a student opened fire inside Aztec High School.
Police say the gunman later killed himself.
School officials say students began the day on Monday with an all-school assembly.
The school will be back on a regular schedule Tuesday and Wednesday.
