SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — The father of the 12-year-old boy who committed suicide after killing a teacher and wounding two classmates at Sparks Middle School says the handgun his son used was in a case but not locked where it was kept on a shelf above their kitchen refrigerator.

Jose Reyes and his wife, Liliana, told KRNV-TV they weren't aware their son, Jose, knew where the semi-automatic gun was stored but somehow managed to find it.

Reyes won't comment on a Sparks police investigation into whether criminal charges should be filed against any adult who knowingly made a firearm available to the youth.

Not a very responsible gun owner. There should be a fine for people like them. Sorry he lost his child but if he had been responsible this never would have happened. What a waste of lives this has caused.
