High school cop shoots armed student at a Wisconsin high school

Gunfire rang out at Oshkosh West High School, about 85 miles (137 km) north of Milwaukee, wounding the student and the school resource officer, both of whom were rushed to the hospital, Oshkosh Police Department said on Facebook.

Waukesha police plan to hold a news conference at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3 regarding the shooting incident that happened at Waukesha South High School on Monday.

"The student and officer were both injured and transported to local hospitals", police said. No officers or other students were injured, Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack said.

The school was kept on lockdown and parents were told they could pick up their children at a local middle school.

Oshkosh police have turned over the incident to the State Department of Criminal Investigations.

A police officer responding to a situation at Waukesha South High School shot an armed male student in a classroom.

Todd Cantwell restored Norwich's advantage with a smart finish before Aubameyang levelled for a second time from a corner. The draw saw Arsenal drop into 8th place seven points behind 4th placed Chelsea who lost to West Ham over the weekend.

This story is breaking and will be updated as more information becomes available. He said the resource officer went to the classroom to confront the teen and move other students in the room to safety.

Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack said the suspect would not remove his hands from his pockets and then took a gun from the waistband of his trousers and pointed it at the officers.

One of the officers - not the school resource officer - fired, striking the suspect, police said.

Police did not say what type of weapon the student used. This is protocol in officer-involved shootings.

Pastor Seelman said some students came into the church, and he walked them to a bus to be transported to Perry Tipler Middle School. The 17-year-old boy was wounded. They said lockdown but everyone was running out of the school.
