Jouett is accused of taking two handguns from his father's safe and walked into the library Monday afternoon.
He told investigators he first used the library's bathroom, exited and started shooting and yelling.
They were being treated at University Medical Center in Texas, across the state line from Clovis.
A shooting inside a public library that killed two people and wounded four has deeply shaken an eastern New Mexico community.
The teen told investigators that he had "been thinking bad things for a while" but did not want to tell his family, his girlfriend or friends at the Living Word Church of God, where he had been attending services for about three months, the documents said.
Authorities on Tuesday identified the gunman accused of opening fire inside a New Mexico public library as a 16-year-old high school student who they say killed a youth librarian and a second employee while wounding four people, including a 10-year-old boy.

(Associated Press)Stevens, the youth's pastor, said Jouett had been troubled but appeared to be turning his life around, never missed a service and recently helped the congregation raise money for a youth camp. Investigators found a bag with suicide notes inside a desk drawer at Jouett's home, the documents said.
The number of registered sex offenders compared to the number of residents in this city is near the state average.
Jouett's father called police Monday to report that the guns had been taken from the safe and that his son was not home but the shooting had already happened, the court documents said.
