SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - A couple who lived next door to the seventh-grader who killed his teacher and shot two classmates outside their Nevada middle school before committing suicide says he was a well-behaved boy from a "wonderful" family.

Bill Williams told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he and his wife never dreamed 12-year-old Jose Reyes or his family would be involved in such a tragedy.

He says they couldn't have asked for better neighbors at their well-kept apartment complex a few blocks from Sparks Middle School, where the shooting broke out before classes started Oct. 21.

Williams says Reyes used to ride his bicycle around the apartments before his family moved out in the weeks before the shooting. He described the boy's family as polite people who would "do anything in the world for you."
