SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Family members have identified a math teacher as the staff member who was killed while trying to stop a shooter at a northern Nevada middle school.

Chanda Landsberry says her 45-year-old brother-in-law, Michael Landsberry, died in the Monday morning shooting at Sparks Middle School.

The suspected gunman is a student who has died. Two other boys were injured.

Students from the middle school and an elementary school next door were evacuated to a nearby high school, and classes were canceled.

Chanda Landsberry says she's not surprised at all that her brother-in-law stepped in to stop the rampage.

Michael Landsberry is a military veteran who leaves behind a wife and two stepdaughters.
