Nevada Middle School Terror

Sparks Mayor Geno Martini called it a "tragic day. Without knowing any of the specifics, I call it just a cowardly isolated incident involving selfishness and cruelty. Two boys were shot.  One is doing well and the other is entering surgery. One school staff member is dead.  The suspected shooter, who was a student, is also dead. Renown Regional Hospital lists both minors to be in critical condition.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the shooter took his own life.  As of this time, Police have yet to confirm the identity of the shooter; nevertheless, the Sparks Middle School in northern Nevada will never be the same.The shooting occurred outside on the school grounds. The middle school and next door Agnes Risley Elementary School were evacuated. 

Gov. Brian Sandoval summed it up for many:  "I was deeply saddened to learn of the horrific shooting at Sparks Middle School this morning."
