UPDATE: Staff Member Considered Hero In Nevada School Shooting

Posted: Updated:

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

A staff member, Michael Landsberry, and a student who was likely the attacker were killed.

Landsberry confronted the shooter, telling him to lower the gun after injuring two students.  

The student shot Landsberry in the chest, killing him, then turned the gun on himself.

A spokeswoman for Renown Regional Medical Center says two boys are in critical condition. 

Spokesman for Washoe County School District says the middle school and elementary school next door have been evacuated to Sparks High School. 

Police haven't provided a motive for the shooting, saying they will continue to dig deeper into the case.

The 12-year old boy used his parents semi-automatic handgun during the school shooting.
