SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — A public celebration of life for the teacher killed in the Monday shooting at Sparks Middle School has been set for Nov. 3.

Nevada law enforcement officials have hailed the actions of Landsberry, a 45-year-old former Marine who tried to get a student to put down the gun. Twelve-year-old Jose Reyes also shot and injured two classmates before turning the gun on himself.

Air Guard Major Dennis Fournier says Landsberry had been with the Guard since 2001 and will receive full military honors, including an honor guard 21-gun salute.

He says the memorial at Sparks Christian Fellowship in Sparks will include remarks from family members and Gov. Brian Sandoval.

A public viewing is scheduled to be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Walton's Funeral Home in Sparks.
