School Shooting Nevada

Community members gather to pay their respects to Michael Landsberry, a 45-year-old eighth-grade math teacher, soccer coach and former Marine who was killed by an eighth-grader at Sparks Middle School on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013 in Sparks, Nev. The 12-year-old student who opened fire on the middle school campus, wounding two classmates and killing Landsberry, before he turned the gun on himself, got the weapon from his home, authorities said Tuesday. School District police said they are still working to determine how the boy obtained the 9mm semi-automatic Ruger handgun used in the Monday morning spree at Sparks Middle School. The boy's parents are cooperating with authorities and could face charges in the case, police said.
