SPARKS, Nev. — Students at a Nevada middle school were filing off buses and reuniting with friends on the playground after a weeklong vacation when the pop of gunfire shattered the morning calm. Children fled the campus for their lives before the first bell rang.

Police said a Sparks Middle School student was the lone shooter who injured two classmates, killed himself and took the life of an eighth-grade math teacher who tried to stop the rampage Monday. The teacher, 45-year-old former serviceman Michael Landsberry, was being hailed for trying to protect students from a shooting that was witnessed by 20 or 30 children.
