WASHINGTON — The new Westlake high-school has been renamed to honor a student killed in a school shooting.
Washoe County officials say the name change will be announced Monday at a news conference.
The name change is in honor of the 17-year-old girl who was killed when a gunman opened fire at Westlake’s Wainwright High School.
More than 70 people were wounded when a man in a vehicle opened fire Tuesday at the school, the same day that the Washington State Patrol announced it had arrested a man suspected of shooting the gunman.
Westlake High Principal Mike Vukovic says the name is meant to honor the 16-year old girl who died in the shooting.
