A 7th-grade, 14 year-old has killed a math teacher at Sparks Middle School in Nevada, and wounded two other students. The child exclaimed, “Why are you laughing at me?” before pulling out a semi-automatic handgun he had stolen from his parents and shooting two students. Michael Landsberry, a math teacher, than ran at the child from across the gym, but was shot and killed.
The unnamed student than turned the gun on himself, and committed suicide. Mr. Landsberry was a popular math teacher and soccer coach at the school, and former and current students rushed online to social media to post their condolences and remember what a great man he was. The two students who were injured are said to be in stable condition.
