READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
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."
