A student and a teacher were killed in a shooting at a middle school in Sparks, Nev., on Monday. A 13-year-old student told the Reno Gazette Journal the teacher was shot after the student pointed a gun at the teacher, and the teacher told the student to put it down. Here's a look back at major school shootings in U.S. history:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) -

Authorities say the student who opened fire on a Nevada middle school campus, wounding two students and killing a teacher, got the weapon from his home.

Washoe County School District Police said Tuesday they are still working to trace where the gun was bought.

Police said a Sparks Middle School student was the lone shooter and killed himself.

Police say 45-year-old math teacher and former Marine Michael Landsberry tried to stop the rampage before he was fatally shot.

The two boys who were shot are stable and recovering.
