FARMINGTON — The Aztec Police Department will deliver a presentation about the Dec. 7 shooting at Aztec High School this week.

The department and Aztec Police Chief Mike Heal will give the presentation at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Chief's Coffee, a monthly community event during which citizens can interact with Heal, according to an Aztec Police Department Facebook post.

It will take place in the Aztec City Commission room at 201 W. Chaco St.

The presentation is set to review the investigation into the shooting in which 17-year-old students Casey J. Marquez and Francisco "Paco" Fernandez were killed before their assailant, William Atchison, shot and killed himself.

The Aztec police officers who first responded to the scene will be available for questions.

Those interested in attending the presentation are asked to contact Sherri Gurule at 505-334-7620 to RSVP.
