The teacher did it so no other children would be hurt, says Newser.com

"[Masterson] stood there and allowed the gun to be pointed right at him so there would be no more young kids hurt," said Gov. Susana Martinez at a prayer vigil last night, according to NBC News.

The governor has called Masterson "an amazing man."

An off-duty police officer ran to help take the 12-year-old into custody. He had been dropping his son off at the school.

Called a hero, Masterson said only:

"It was a harrowing experience. All I can say was the staff there did a great job," reports The Albuquerque Journal

The shooter has been named as Mason Campbell, says the Albuquerque Journal and he is currently at a psychiatric hospital.

There is, as yet, no known motive and the two who are injured are an 11-year-old boy (now in critical condition) and a 13-year-old girl, named Kendal Sanders. She is now in a stable condition, reports the AP

Roswell is a farming community of around 50,000 people.
