SPARKS, Nev. - He was dressed like any other student at Sparks Middle School: standard khaki pants and a Sparks sweat shirt. He was tall for a middle schooler, with dark, spiked hair, and he held a Ruger 9-millimeter semiautomatic handgun in his hand. The 12-year-old boy pointed the weapon at about 30 terrified students huddled in a corner near an outdoor school basketball court early Monday. He locked eyes with eighth-grader Omar Lopez, who was nearby. "You guys ruined my life, so I'm going to ruin yours," he told the group, Omar said.

Will F. Peck, H.V. Gentry and T.T. Roach certainly knew how to cement their place in Los Angeles history.
