ROSWELL, N.M. -- Authorities say juvenile charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon have been filed against a 12-year-old New Mexico boy suspected of opening fire on classmates in a Roswell middle school.

State Police Lt. Emmanuel Gutierrez Thursday confirmed three charges have been filed against the boy, who authorities say brought a shotgun to school in a duffel bag and fired three rounds in the gymnasium Tuesday morning as students were gathered, waiting for classes to begin.

An 11-year-old boy was critically injured after being hit in the face and neck. A 13-year-old girl was hit in the shoulder. A school employee also suffered minor injuries. The 12-year-old accused in the shooting was transferred to an Albuquerque psychiatric hospital following a hearing Tuesday.
