SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — A shooting at a middle school in northern Nevada has left two people dead and two boys in critical condition, rattling parents, teachers and students as they showed up for the start of the school week.

The identities of the shooter and victims weren’t immediately known. The suspect is “down,” police said, and school officials say there is no further danger.

Students from the middle school and next door elementary school were evacuated to the nearby high school, and classes were canceled.

The shooting happened on the school’s campus, but outside the school building itself, according to police.

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

Gov. Brian Sandoval issued a statement after hearing about the shooting.

“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,” he said. Sandoval extended his thoughts and prayers to those affected.

Sparks, a city of roughly 90,000 that sprung out of the railway industry, lies just east of Reno

    Dont bother with another protest against guns. It is obvious America no longer cares about how many kids die or peple die for that matter. It is more about winning than doing what is right. We have literally returned to the Old West. All you have to do is roll your eyes and/or look at somebody the wonrg way, and its “DRAW!” Matt Dillon Style. Ad the “Stand Your Ground” rule and you’ve got Gunsmoke, Bonanza, The Good, the Bad & the Ulgy all rolled up into one. Not until Wayne LaPierre’s onw kids get shot and killed will they ever, consider any kind of changes. Even then, I dont believe they would have a change of heart. We just like guns tooo much! This is why Jesus said ” Let the wheat grow with the Tares; I’ll do the seperating”
