School Shooter’s Father Says Gun Wasn’t Locked

Posted: Updated:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - The father of the 12-year-old boy who committed suicide after killing a teacher and wounding two classmates at a Nevada middle school said the handgun his son used was kept in a case, but wasn't locked up.

Jose Reyes and his wife, Liliana, told KRNV-TV they weren't aware their son, Jose, knew where the semi-automatic gun was stored above their refrigerator but somehow he managed to find it.

Reyes won't comment on a Sparks police investigation into whether criminal charges should be filed against any adult who knowingly made a firearm available to the youth.
