An armed Wisconsin 16-year-old high school student confronted a school resource officer on Tuesday morning, resulting in an officer-involved shooting, police said -- one day after a similar incident unfolded at another Wisconsin high school.
The teen allegedly walked into the resource officer's office, took out an "edged weapon" and stabbed the officer, Oshkosh Police Chief Dean Smith said at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.
The officer, who is a current police officer with the Oshkosh Police Department, then shot the student once.
Both the student and the officer were injured and transported to local hospitals, and police do not believe their injuries are life-threatening, Smith said. No one else was injured in the incident.
As of 10 a.m. local time, Oshkosh West was locked down, according to authorities. Parents were told to pick up their children at a local middle school and all classes were canceled for Wednesday, Vickie Cartwright, the superintendent of schools said in a statement.
"Today’s tragic event shows that trained school resource officers can help save lives," Cartwright said. "We are grateful for our partnership with our local law enforcement agencies, as well as our trained staff and proactive approach to emergency response within our district."
"This incident is being turned over to the state department of criminal investigations who will conduct the investigation," the police department said. "There will be more information released as it becomes available."
A student at Waukesha told school officials that another student brought a handgun to school. The school resource officer promptly responded to a classroom and tried to secure the scene by getting other students to safety.
While law enforcement officials tried to "de-escalate" the situation by talking to the student, Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack said the 17-year-old "would not remove his hands" from his pocket and ignored officers' commands and eventually pointed a handgun from his waistband at the officers.
Police confirmed that two weapons were found in the classroom and both were pellet guns. Police later searched the student's home and found more pellet guns.
A police officer on the scene "was forced to discharge" his firearm and shot the student once in the leg and twice in the arm. Officers immediately administered life-saving attention to the student. He was transported to a hospital, and was in stable condition as of Monday.
