Police: New Mexico woman hid gun at elementary school

May 16, 2018

AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico woman is accused of hiding a handgun on the grounds of an elementary school.

The Daily Times of Farmington, New Mexico, reports 25-year-old Brooke Showers was arrested in Aztec last week following an investigation by police.

A criminal complaint alleges Showers told police she hid a revolver in a gun case at Lydia Rippey Elementary School. Court documents say an officer found the gun with six rounds but it’s unclear if the rounds were in the gun or in the case.

Showers was charged with unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon on school premise. There’s no listing of an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

Aztec was the site of a deadly high school shooting that claimed the lives of two students last year.


This story has been corrected to reflect that the school shooting occurred in 2017, not this year.
