UPDATE: Two dead, two injured in Nevada school shooting
Police in Nevada have confirmed that two people are dead and two others injured in a shooting at a middle school in Sparks Nevada, just east of Reno.
The Police Chief says of the two boys in hospital, one has been through surgery, while the second is 'doing well'. He says one of the people killed was a staff member at the school, while the other was a 'student-slash-suspect'.
The Reno Gazette-Journal is reporting that a 13 year old said he saw his teacher get shot when he confronted what appeared to be a boy walk into the Sparks Middle School, armed with a gun.
The identity of any of the victims has not been released.
Police said between 150 and 200 officers responded to the shooting.
Students from the middle school and next door elementary school were evacuated to the nearby high school, and classes were cancelled.
At the evacuation centre, parents walked with their arms around their children, some of whom were in tears.
