On January 14, 2014, at about 8:10 am, a student opened fire inside the gymnasium of Berrendo Middle School. The suspect was then subdued by a staff member until he was taken into police custody. A 12-year-old student and a 13-year-old student were both airlifted to a hospital in Lubbock, Texas, in critical condition. The suspected shooter was a seventh-grade 12-year-old student at the school named Mason Campbell, who used a shotgun that was smuggled into the school inside an instrument case. Campbell is facing three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, and can be confined in a juvenile detention facility until he turns 21 years old.
