Eyewitness to shooting says student was bullied

On the heels of Monday's school shooting in Sparks, Nevada that left two dead including the shooter, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Amaya Newton and her mom Tabatha to offer their perspective.

Not only did Amaya witness the shooter, she knew him personally:

"He was really a nice kid. He would make you smile when you were having a bad day," she told Piers Morgan. Amaya said she believes he shot the teacher because "I saw him getting bullied a couple of times and I think he took out his bullying on it."

Tabatha struggled to see how the 12-year-old shooter didn't get any help from the school before opening fire:

"I just find it difficult to get that he got bullied but that he didn't have anybody to talk to, anybody to go to in the school before he decided to do this ... it's devastating."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Amaya and Tabatha Newton, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Piers Morgan needs to keep his nose out of the US biz. Go back to the UK or is it you are not wanted there?.

    Says who? A native American, or someone who came from somewhere? It's time to get some lessons about "Respect the life" yours and the one from others. Mr. Morgan is at right place at the right time and he is doing the right thing. Finally someone came over with this values.
