NV Teacher Remembered As 'Hero'


By KMVT Staff

Sparks, Nevada ( KTVN ) The funeral for a Nevada teacher gunned down by a student was held Sunday.

On Saturday family and friends gathered to pay their respects to Master Sergeant Michael Landsberry.

Police say he died trying to intervene in last month's shooting at Sparks Middle School.

Those who attended Saturday's viewing say Landsberry was more than a teacher.

"Now, we just know that he died protecting people. And that's like the best thing that he could do — he went out as a hero."

Landsberry was a member of the Nevada Air National Guard and a Marine.
