The Washoe County School District has discontinued the use of an anti-bullying video that was shown to students at Sparks Middle School, including the 12-year-old gunman who went on a fatal schoolyard shooting rampage in the weeks after he watched it.

The 23-minute video entitled dramatizes a student firing a gun to get back at bullies. It also features real security footage from the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School.

Sparks seventh-grader Jose Reyes had images of the Columbine killers on his cellphone the day he fatally shot a teacher, wounded two classmates and committed suicide last October.
