"The suspect is a 17-year-old male, he was transported to the hospital and was in stable condition", Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack told reporters outside the school on Monday. When the suspect refused to remove his hands from his pockets and ignored the officers, the suspect removed the gun from his waistband and pointed it at the officers, he said.
A student resource officer immediately responded to the classroom where the student was located.
Officers spoke with the suspect to deescalate the situation.
There is no word yet on how bad the student, whose name has not been released, was injured.
Authorities said that a student notified administrators after hearing that a student was in possession of a handgun at school. Jack says the officer who shot the student is an 11-year veteran of the Waukesha police department.
Jack said police are not looking for any other suspects.
The student was found in a home in the City of Waukesha and was taken into custody. Other Waukesha officers also responded to the school.
"We are not seeking anybody else we have no other persons of interest".
