Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - A local teacher, for some unknown reason, brings his life to an end in the middle of a high school courtyard. Fortunately, students were not in school when it happened, but it doesn't lessen the blow as everyone wonders what drove this teacher over the edge.
Police swarmed Western High School near Decatur and Bonanza after staff heard a gunshot and dialed 911.
"This afternoon at about 2:30 one single shot was heard by the staff here at Western High School," Lt. Ken Young with Clark County School Police says.
When police arrive they found a 58 year old man laying dead in the school's courtyard. They say a teacher committed suicide.
"We don't have any specifics as to why he may have taken the actions that he did on today," Lt. Young says.
