There has been a shooting at a Reno, Nev. middle school, though few details are known so far. The Reno Gazette-Journal shared the details available so far on Oct. 21.
The school shooting happened Monday morning at the Sparks Middle School. Authorities indicate that the shooter has been “neutralized,” and students from the school were quickly evacuated to the Agnes Risley Elementary School. Reports indicate that now the students will be transported to the Sparks High School, and parents have been allowed to pick up their children. Otherwise, the area is blocked off as the investigation continues.
Reportedly one boy, said to be a 12-year-old, was shot Monday morning as classes were starting. It does not appear this is the alleged shooter, and there is no word yet on whether the injured student was a random or specific target. CNN indicates the Sparks Police Department shared it was “unclear” how many people have been shot, so it is unknown if there are more injured students. Stay tuned for further updates on the Nevada middle school shooting as details emerge.
Updates: According to the RGJ, two male students are in critical condition after Monday morning's shooting. The alleged shooter is apparently dead after a self-inflicted gunshot.
