SPARKS, Nev. (AP) -- Police say they won't pursue criminal charges against the parents of a Nevada seventh-grader who went on a shooting rampage at his school nearly seven months ago, killing a teacher and wounding two classmates before committing suicide.
In the days after the Oct. 21 shooting at Sparks Middle School, police said 12-year-old Jose Reyes' parents could be charged if they knowingly made the gun available to him.
But Sparks Police Chief Brian Allen said at a news conference Tuesday there's no evidence the couple committed a crime.
The boy took the semi-automatic handgun from a kitchen cabinet in their home. His parents, Jose and Liliana Reyes, say they were not aware that he knew it was kept there.
It was also revealed that Reyes was a taking a prescription antidepressant and had told a psychotherapist that he was teased at school. Reyes did leave a suicide note saying he wished he had been a better son.
Allen also says police believe Jose Reyes searched online for videos about Columbine High School massacre and other school shootings.
