Sparks School Shooter's Parents Help Fight Bullies

Posted: Updated:

The parents of a 12-year-old Sparks boy who shot and killed a teacher and wounded two students before turning the gun on himself have donated nearly $14,000 to an anti-bullying program in a partnership with the school district.
 
The Associated Press reports Jose and Liliana Reyes told the Reno Gazette-Journal (http://tinyurl.com/n5h8788) they want do the right thing by making the contribution with the money that was given to them through the Sparks Middle School Compassion Fund.
 
Four months after the killings, police are still investigating and haven't decided whether Jose Reyes' parents should face criminal charges for failing to keep the handgun from their son.
 
They wrote checks on Monday to Community Matters, a Bay Area-group that has assisted with anti-violence programs in 32 states and is working with the Washoe County school district.
