An officer on Monday shot an armed 17-year-old student at a high school classroom in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha, Wisconsin, police said.
The school was placed on lockdown after the incident, and authorities said parents can reunite with their kids at Perry Tipler Middle School. San Luis Obispo High School, along with the support of our district office, will move forward with appropriate student disciplinary measures. The student and officer were taken to local hospitals, where their conditions are unknown. They characterized the incident as an "officer involved shooting". A student was armed with a weapon and confronted a school resource officer.
In the message, the student allegedly wrote, "I'm thinking about shooting the school up", the school said.
"During their investigation, San Luis Obispo Police Department worked closely with school administrators, staff and counselors", police said in a press release. Meisel said the students were scared.
All Oshkosh Area Schools will be closed Wednesday, Dec. 4 due to the incident that occurred at Oshkosh West High School.
School shootings have occasionally shone a spotlight on the response by guards and school resource officers.
This story has been corrected to show the investigating agency is called the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, not the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation; and the student confronted a school resource officer, rather than a police officer confronted the armed student.
The investigation began after the words "Don't come Dec 6, School Shooting" were reportedly found November 21.
