RENO, Nev. — A Nevada school district has approved a $100,000 settlement for the wife of a teacher killed trying to stop a student shooter two years ago.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports ( ) that the settlement approved Tuesday will be paid in exchange for Sharon Landsberry not taking any legal action against the Washoe County School District.

The resolution comes after nearly two years of negotiations between attorneys representing Landsberry and the Reno-area district.

Seventh-grader Jose Reyes brought a pistol to school and killed 45-year-old math teacher Michael Landsberry on Oct. 21, 2013. Landsberry was shot while trying to protect other students.

Reyes also shot and injured two students before killing himself.

Sharon Landsberry will get an additional $44,000 for the 148 sick days accrued by her husband.
