Sparks, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- After a day of unspeakable tragedy at Sparks Middle School there is some good news coming out of Renown Regional Medical center tonight. The two victims brought to the hospital from the school this morning are both listed in stable and are expected to survive. All thanks to the quick actions of first responders, and doctors at the hospital.

Hospital officials tell us that two patients both 12 year old middle school students, were transported to Renown by REMSA at about 7:45 this morning.

Washoe County Emergency Manager Tracy tells News 4 that REMSO was already staged prior to the shooting in a nearby neighborhood where they had been assisting with an officer involved shooting.

According to Moore one of the paramedics was what is known as a "tactical paramedic," meaning he was trained specifically for these types of incidents.

Both victims brought to Renown had sustained gunshot wounds and were assessed and listed in critical condition. They were met by a trauma team who according to Myron Gomez are well versed in how to handle these incidents.

At the 11 A.M. press conference we learned that one of the victims had undergone surgery and was, “doing well,” according to Ron Miller of Sparks Police Department.

According to WCSD Emergency Manager Tracy Moore one of the victims sustained a gunshot went to his lower abdomen the other to the upper torso area.

Moore also tells News 4 one of the victims was actually trying to assist that brave teacher when the gunman shot him.

...sounds like there were two heroes on the campus of Sparks Middle School yesterday: Mr. Landsberry and the 12-year old child who was wounded trying to assist his fallen teacher. Condolences to the family of Mr. Landsberry, and prayers and best wishes for the recovery of the young man.

Now that GMann is going, and good riddance, why not comment on the bravery and willingness to serve of the teacher and the outstanding student who tried to help him? 12 years old, and he tried to help a teacher in jeopardy! A+.

Gee. Hawaii used to be such a nice place. The people on the big island were polite and friendly. They even signal for turns in parking lots. And now GMann is going to go there and ruin everything. Why not stop in Kalifornia? They're used to the attitude.

By the way, go to Winco on the 1st, there are a whole lot more white people in there than any other race.

Good riddance GMann, your ignorance will not be missed. Nevada is better off without you!

This and the other stories from Reno over the last week are the primary reasons why I am moving from Reno. I've been here since '86, but the crime rate has been going up. I'm here in Kona, Hawaii, and the crime rate here is nill. I'm sick of the tagging's, the illegal immigrants (Hispanics, just go to Winco on the 1st of the month!). I am sick of the bank robberies every other day. RPD motorcycle units like to do speed traps instead of preventing//solving crimes, and they won't come to your residence if you have a break-in. Reno is definitely going don hill. Kona has no Hispanics, and no snow. Fresh fish, warm temps, and the ocean to swim in. Good bye Reno!!!
