February 15 Morning Rush: Teen faces 3 counts of attempted murder in Cleveland HS incident


1. Cleveland High School remains closed until Tuesday after police say at least one gunshot was fired inside the school Thursday. A 16-year old student is charged with three counts of attempted murder in firing that shot. Investigators have yet to reveal a possible motive. Rio Rancho Police say Joshua Owen fired at least one shot then ran off campus. Police say they caught up with him in an arroyo about a mile away.  After the shot, school staff told students to go to the gym,  then evacuate to the fields. They were then taken to the Santa Ana Star Center. No one was hurt in the incident. Police say Owen ditched the gun on campus as he ran. His charges appear to indicate Owen may have been targeting three people at the school. He was booked into the Bernalillo County Juvenile Detention Center.
