RENO, Nev. (AP) — A northwestern Nevada superintendent says there's no evidence a seventh-grader was bullied before he fatally shot a teacher, wounded two classmates and killed himself at Sparks Middle School last month.

Pedro Martinez tells KTVN-TV (http://bit.ly/1eqRcfw ) that there's nothing in Washoe County School District records that indicates Jose Reyes was bullied.

Jose and Liliana Reyes have used the word "teased" to describe what their son faced about a speech problem but said he never showed signs of harboring anger or resentment.

Their attorney, Kent Robison, told KTVN that Jose was teased at school and even saw a counselor.

Some students have said bullying played a role in the shooting, but police said they have no evidence of that and have refused to comment about anything that might have provoked the attack.
