A 17-year-old student shot in Wisconsin after pulling gun in classroom

A school resource officer inside Waukesha South High School in  Wisconsin shot a 17-year-old student who pulled a gun in a classroom and refused to drop it.

The student even removed the handgun from his waistband and pointed it at officers. Police raced to Waukesha South School, located roughly 20 miles west of Milwaukee. The student with the gun was the only person injured in the incident. The first Waukesha Fire Department units at the scene reported to dispatchers that the patient was conscious, alert and breathing. Shortly after the situation occurred, the police department tweeted the building was safe and what happened was an "isolated incident" and confirmed they were investigating what happened.


The school went on lockdown at 10 a.m. „When that occurs we hide in the corners and turn off the lights and lock the doors,” a student explained. Police squad cars were blocking all the entrances at the high school and other streets around the school were shut down. Students at the high school were dismissed for the day at 11:15 a.m. Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly called this a "terrifying day." Nothing was discosed about the motivation of the teenager who provoqued the incident.
