Following the shooting at the Clovis-Carver Public Library in Clovis on Monday, the Roswell Police Department will be reviewing security measures and emergency procedures at city buildings and other public-access facilities throughout Roswell.

The RPD’s public information officer Todd Wildermuth said the department has no reason to believe the shooting that occurred was anything other than an isolated incident, and do not believe there is any imminent local danger related to the shooting.

“Also, any business that would like RPD to do an assessment of its facility and offer guidance in preparing an emergency action plan can contact the police department (at) 575-624-6770, and speak to Commander Fil Gonzales,” Wildermuth added in a press release. “We ask everyone to always be vigilant in being aware of their surroundings and immediately report to police any activity that seems suspicious.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in Clovis.”
