2 Dead, 2 Injured In Nev. School Shooting

SPARKS, Nev. (KXNT/AP) — Police say two people are dead and two more are injured in a shooting at Sparks Middle School in northern Nevada Monday morning.

Washoe County School District Police didn’t immediately offer details of the identities of the dead. They said the school is “all clear” and the suspect is “down,” but offered no further details.

Spokeswoman Angela Rambo of Renown Regional Medical Center says two boys are in critical condition.

Washoe County School District spokesman Charles Rahn says the middle school and next door Agnes Risley Elementary School have been evacuated to Sparks High School. Rahn said the middle and elementary schools will be closed Monday.

Governor Brian Sandoval issued the following statement: 

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the horrific shooting at Sparks Middle School this morning.  My administration is receiving regular updates and the Nevada Highway Patrol is assisting at the scene. Kathleen and I extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims and those affected by these tragic events.”
