Law enforcement gather in the parking lot of Sparks Middle School after a shooting on October 21, 2013 in Sparks, Nevada.

A shooter at a Nevada middle school wounded two students before the morning bell and killed a math teacher who was trying to intervene, police said Monday.

The suspected shooter, a student, is dead, the Associated Press reports. Police later confirmed the shooter died of a self-inflicted gun wound. Two other wounded students, both age 12, are in stable condition.

Police also said that law enforcement did not fire any shots.

Children from the Sparks Middle School, in Sparks, Nev., just east of Reno, were evacuated, and police set up a command post outside the school with 150 to 200 police officers responding. The family of the math teacher identified him as Michael Landsberry, a 45-year-old military veteran, according to the AP. The names of the shooter and other victims have not been released.
