School Shooting in Nevada

[Content Note: Guns; violence; self-harm.]

There's been another school shooting, this time at a middle school in Nevada, which has left one teacher dead and two students injured, one in serious condition. The shooter, who was reportedly wearing a school uniform, is also dead, although it is not yet clear whether he took his own life or was shot by police.

The Reno Gazette-Journal is publishing updates here.

My heart hurts for the kids at that school. My condolences to the lost teacher's friends, family, and colleagues. I hope the kids who were hurt have access to all the medical care they will need.

Besides that, I don't even know what to say anymore.

UPDATE 1: The New York Times reports that the shooter took his own life.
