SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — A friend of the Nevada middle school student who killed a teacher and wounded two classmates before killing himself says Jose Reyes was a typical 12-year-old who liked soccer, was good at video games and didn't have a lot of friends but didn't seem to be a loner.
Eleven-year-old Diego Munoz told The Associated Press on Friday that Reyes was always smiling and never complained to him about bullying.
Munoz says he was surprised to find out Reyes was the shooter and has been asking himself "why?"
Reyes killed 45-year-old Michael Landsberry outside Sparks Middle School on Monday.
Munoz says Reyes seemed happy and intelligent.
