A plea deal was announced Tuesday in the deadly Clovis library shooting.

Nathaniel Ray Jouett, age 17, of Clovis, NM. Jouett signed a plea and disposition agreement with the State, pleading guilty to all charges stemming from the mass shooting that occurred on August 28, 2017, at the Clovis Carver Public Library. 

Jouett is accused of walking into the Clovis Carver library in August 2017 and opening fire, killing librarians Wanda Walters and Kristina Carter and seriously wounding four others, including a 10-year-old boy.

Jouett was caught just minutes later.

The District Attorney’s office says a judge still has to approve the plea agreement and would have full discretion on the sentence.

They say it could range from probation to two life sentences plus 96 years.

A date for that hearing has not been set.
