SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Police say two people are dead and two more are injured in a shooting at Sparks Middle School in northern Nevada Monday morning.

Washoe County School District Police didn't immediately offer details of the identities of the dead. They said the school is "all clear" and the suspect is "down," but offered no further details.

Spokeswoman Angela Rambo of Renown Regional Medical Center says two boys are in critical condition.

Washoe County School District spokesman Charles Rahn says the middle school and next door Agnes Risley Elementary School have been evacuated to Sparks High School. Rahn said the middle and elementary schools will be closed Monday.

Sparks is a city just east of Reno.
