Accused Clovis shooter enters not guilty plea
CLOVIS, NM (KVII) —
The teen charged in the shooting at the Clovis-Carver Public Library has entered a not guilty plea and waived his rights to appear at an arraignment.
16-year-old Nathaniel Jouett was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, Sept. 21, on a trailing docket.
Jouett is facing 33 charges including two counts of First Degree Murder, seven counts of Child Abuse with Great Bodily Harm, four counts of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon and 20 counts of Assault with Intent to Commit a Violent Felony. He is being charged as an adult.
Two people, 61-year-old Wanda Walters and 48-year-old Krissie Carter, were killed in the shooting. Four others were injured.
Court documents said Jouett had taken two handguns from his father's safe and originally had planned to shoot up his high school because he was angry, but ended up going to the library instead.
