The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department says the 13-year-old boy who shot two students in a Roswell middle school will end up at one of the state's four youth facilities in about a month.

On Wednesday, a judge gave Mason Campbell the maximum sentence. He will be in CYFD custody until he is 21.

CYFD officials could not tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 in which facility Campbell would be placed, but there is an indication he will stay at the one closest to his home, which is in Ruidoso.

It will take about 30 days to fully evaluate him and the state could decide to release him early if they believe he's rehabilitated.
