Nevada School Shooting Leaves Two Dead, Two Injured

by at . Comments

A staff member was killed and two students were injured after a student opened fire at a Nevada middle school Monday. The shooter was later killed as well.

Authorities said it was too soon to say what the shooter's motive as, or whether he was killed by a self-inflicted wound or a law enforcement shot.

"As you can imagine, the best description is chaos," said Tom Robinson, deputy chief of the Reno Police Department, of the Sparks Middle School shooting.

"It's too early to say whether he was targeting specific people or just going on an indiscriminate shooting spree," he added of this morning's tragedy.

A 13-year-old student said he saw a student fire a shot at a teacher:

"The student was pointing a gun at the teacher after the teacher told him to put it down, and the student fired a shot at the teacher, and the teacher fell, and everybody ran away."

One of the students injured in the latest school shooting to make national news has undergone surgery, Mieras said, and the other is "doing well."

City officials said authorities received emergency calls from students and staff at the school about 7:15 a.m. about an active shooter on campus.

Authorities said students were being taken to a nearby high school to meet their parents, while the middle school and a nearby elementary school were closed.

"I was deeply saddened to learn of the horrific shooting at Sparks Middle School this morning," Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said in a statement.
