FWIW, I read an unsourced comment that said “shooter neutralized” on another website about a half hour ago http://commentsys.slopeofhope.com/go.php?c=1558680

Reports now say the shooter died of a self inflicted wound. At least on child wounded (12 year old).

Luckily the gun free zones did not claim another victim.

I hope “neutralized” means there were armed guards who fired their shots before the fruitcake did.

Another gun free zone. How many easy targets did the killer take out this time?

When are people going to realize the politicians won't be there to save them every time someone pulls out a gun, or a knife, or machete, or what ever. When are they going to realize the politicians don't have THEIR best interest in mind?

And why is it every time the democrats get in trouble there's a shooting somewhere? I'm beginning to sense a pattern here. "Let's not talk about the obomacare failures anymore. We need a new crise to change the subject. Got any ideas? A shooting would do the trick. That always works."

Like clockwork.

It's becoming more than obvious that these things are provoked with intent, for the purpose of giving the administration political distraction and for stumping for gun control.

Way too 'few' for administration needs. The body count has to be far higher to get the effect they desire.

Personally, I'm very grateful that the body count is low -- comparatively, of course.

Latest. Two dead, two wounded and I thought I heard them say the shooter was down? Details will become more unclear as the day goes on as usual. Looked like all of Sparks PD was there and half the Reno PD plus most WCSD and NHP on scene. Next news conference scheduled at 11. No mention of an AR yet. Gun control folks will be cranking up shortly after they get there screed together. Not in the school but on the campus grounds.

Looking at the demographics of the town

White alone - 53,740 (58.9%)
Hispanic - 25,173 (27.6%)
Asian alone - 5,401 (5.9%)
Two or more races - 2,931 (3.2%)
Black alone - 1,796 (2.0%)
American Indian alone - 1,380 (1.5%)
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone - 708 (0.8%)
Other race alone - 73 (0.08%)
http://www.city-data.com/city/Sparks-Nevada.html

feral Amish were likely not involved.

Although looking at the school’s demographics the school’s population is

60% Hispanics
31% White
5% Asian
3% Black
2% Other

with 53% eligible for a fully subsidized lunch and 16% eligible for a partially subsidized lunch.

Possibly a Mexican gang shooting?

Yup. First of all, prayers to the victims. I got a knot in my gut as soon as I heard about this cause we all know what’s coming. NFL broadcasters will be calling for more gun control, the justus bros may show up if there were any minorities involved/mistreated. It does most assuredly suck in any case. The latest I got from the locals (who of course have already started with the “too often” crap) was two fatal+shooter. Two critical at local hospitals. No indication yet if they were students or faculty. Looked like a student being loaded in to the ambulance. Probably some kid(?) who “felt” disrespected or was being bullied. Even though we know bullying is a no-no.

Prayers up. But let’s not forget the wreaths and flowers for the makeshift memorial, the candlelight vigil, call out the greif counselors(which seems to be a good “growth industry” to invest in). Get Gabby Giffords, the Sandy Hookers, Sarah Brady, etc. down there for their photo-ops. Maybe a special guest appearance by Code Pink and a few OWSers, they’ve been on the bench for quite a while. Pathetic.

11:22 a.m. update:

A student at Sparks Middle School shot and killed a teacher and wounded two other students Monday morning before fatally turning the gun on himself, police said.

Two unidentified males were wounded in the shooting and were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in critical condition, a spokeswoman said. The Reno Gazette-Journal is trying to confirm the identity of the shooter and the teacher, who was reportedly a popular math teacher there, according to eyewitness accounts. Police said the teacher who was shot was trying to protect students.

Police said the shooting happened at 7:15 a.m. and students were evacuated to nearby Agnes Risley Elementary School and then to Sparks High School, where parents picked up their children.

At an 11 a.m. press conference, officials said of the two injured students, one was out of surgery and the other was doing well.

How do they do it? Here’s a real life example of someone who got caught trying to turn youths into mind-controlled killers, from 20 years ago:

Update on Sparks shooting;

The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooter’s name. This is very unusual. I suspect his parents are employed by the school district or the police department.

It is indeed unusual. In every case, the shooter is always identified almost immediately. What’s preventing the students from posting it anywhere online? Some sort of gag order? There’s certainly more to this than meets the eye.

“The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooter’s name. This is very unusual. I suspect his parents are employed by the school district or the police department.”

That is more than likely a big clue as too why this hasn’t become a national fire storm to take attention away from ObozoCare.
