Roswell middle school shooting suspect transferred

Mason Campbell, the 12-year-old suspected of shooting and seriously wounding two other children at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell on Jan. 14, has been transferred from an Albuquerque psychiatric hospital to the Chaves County Juvenile Detention Center in Roswell.

Ninth Judicial District Attorney Matt Chandler said Friday that State Police transferred the boy Thursday afternoon. Campbell waived his right to his first hearing and was booked into the juvenile detention center. An additional charge of carrying a firearm into a school was added, Chandler said. Campbell had already been charged with three counts of aggravated battery.

Campbell will undergo a 30-day forensic evaluation, “after which a report will be issued to the parties in the matter and then the matter will reconvene in front of Children’s Court Judge,” who will set a trial date, Chandler said.
