SPARKS, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Before injuring three people and killing a teacher, Michael Landsberry, on October 21, 2013, Jose Reyes left two handwritten notes. Sparks PD released those notes on Tuesday.

The first note was directed at the students and teachers of Sparks Middle School. This note contains graphic and sensitive language:

"Dear teachers and students

Today is the day when I kill you bastards for the embarrassment that you did. You say mean things in school. That I'm gay, that I'm lazy. Stupid, idiot, and also say that I pee my pants and also stealing my money. Well, that all ends. Today I will get my revenge on the students and teachers for ruining my life. Today I bring a god damn pistol and rifle to shoot you and see how you like it when someone (is) making fun of you. Once I kill you your life will be nothing but nightmare and bad dreams. I don't care if I have lots of bullets to shoot all of you cause I'm gonna die trying on my last stand. And right now this school will now come to an end and your death will be rising when I shoot you. Have a great death at school."

The second note was directed to his parents:

"Dear mom and dad

I'm sorry about all this is because some of my family and friends hate me but I understand. What I did this shooting is not because of the shooting games, bullying, or other stuff, is because of the past causes. There were some bad things in the past cause of me. And now I'm just a monster. But I want to say my last words. When I die I will go back to the past and fix everything so it can be a great past. And the shooting of sparks middle school never should have happen. I wish I can be a smart and a better kkid so I can be the better son in our family. But if you hate me and my family doesn't love me it's okay. I know that I'm just an idiot.

But I love you and I wish the past would be good and better someday.

From Jose H Reyes Urtiz"

Start working at home with Google. It’s a great work at home opportunity. Just work for few hours. I earn up to $500 a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out.

This report says nothing, Why are the parent's not arrested Leaving a weapon for this kid to get a hold of. And on top of that he's on a drug. There's more to this then is being told to us.
