(Rio Rancho, NM) Cleveland High School shooter released from treatment, charges dropped

Last edited Sun Jul 19, 2020, 02:24 PM - Edit history (1)

A teenager accused of firing a gun inside Rio Rancho high school last year has been released from custody and his charges have been dismissed. According to court documents, police found a list on Joshua Owen after the shooting that described a plan to kill his ex-girlfriend, kill other people then commit suicide with his last bullet.

According to District Attorney Lemuel Martinez, Joshua Owen was sent to a children’s psychiatric hospital, but they refused to hold him. The state facility that was supposed to take him, said they do not treat minors who are there involuntarily. So with nowhere to send him and therefore no way to help him reach competency, the judge dismissed the charges last month.

Owen has been released from custody with no orders to get treatment.

1. What could possibly go wrong?

I hope that local authorities are keeping a very close eye on him and his family. It seems that it might be a good idea to arrest him for bringing the weapon to the school, and holding him without bail (or a very high bail) and just losing him in the system.

2. Damn, this is no joke. A kid here killed five people when his girlfriend dumped him.

This guy's ex-girlfriend must be terrified.

Surely there is some way to control this kid.
