Mr Cummings said the source was "authentic, credible, and reliable", and offered to introduce the individual to Mr Gowdy. The whistleblower was "extremely uncomfortable" with the situation, and made notes about it and Copson's name.


Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye said in a statement that all schools in the area were placed on preventative lockdown as a precaution.

The New Mexico State Police were taking over the investigation. Aztec, a community with fewer than 6,000 residents, is about 16 miles northeast of Farmington, N.M. Mike Heal, the chief of the Aztec Police Department, did not indicate whether two of the dead were students or adults.

Other schools in the area also were locked down, and authorities were setting up staging areas where parents could gather and wait for more information.
