Washington State Teacher Shot At Christian School In Iraq

SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq (AP) - A gym teacher from Washington state was shot and killed in a dispute with an 18-year-old student in Iraq.

The teacher is identified as 33-year-old Jeremiah Small of Cosmopolis in western Washington. His father, J. Dan Small, confirmed the death on his Facebook page.

Authorities in the Kurdish city of Sulaimaniyah said 18-year-old Biyar Sarwar shot Small before turning the gun on himself at a private English-speaking school during a morning sports lecture.
Sarwar died later at a nearby hospital.

Eyewitnesses in Iraq described a scene of chaos in the classroom, with some students fainting in fear after gunfire shattered the morning class.

The Nashville, Tenn.-based Servant Group International said Small was one of nine American teachers at the Medes School, which is run by Iraqi Kurds.
