Authorities did not provide a motive for the shooting, and it’s unknown where the student got the gun.
One official described the scene at Sparks Middle School with one word: chaos.
Terrified students ran into the school screaming and crying when they realized the pops they heard were gunshots just before the morning bell welcomed them back from fall break.

Mike Landsberry, a popular math teacher at the school loved the students so much ,his brother told the press.
