SPARKS, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The investigation into the Sparks Middle School shooting is wrapping up, but police say they continue to get new evidence in the case.
Sparks Police Chief Brian Allen said he is hoping to have the entire investigation completed very soon. Police are taking a close look at what led up to the shooting, how the shooter, Jose Reyes, got the gun, and the overall response to the shooting.
Allen said when new evidence is brought forward, that takes more time to examine. "That was a very complex investigation. Forensic evidence was still coming back to us as late as January, and we're trying to put those final pieces together."
Reyes shot and killed a teacher, and wounded two classmates before taking his own life. His family said the boy was depressed, because he had been teased at school.
