RENO, Nev. – A student at a Reno high school reportedly stabbed a classmate, forcing a campus police officer to shoot the knife-wielding teenager Wednesday, according to Fox News.
Paramedics responded to Hug High School and transported the student who was shot to Renown Hospital Medical Center, Nevada Department of Public Safety director James Wright said. No update was provided regarding the condition of either teen.
Police locked down the school as they investigated.
Freshman Robert Barragan told the Reno Gazette-Journal the knife-wielding student fell to the ground after the officer shot him in the shoulder.
The two students, both boys, had been fighting outside the school library before one pulled out the knife, Barragan said.
Wright said the officer was uninjured.
Hug High opened in 1968 and was named for Procter Ralph Hug Jr., a former federal judge.
