MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Officials in Wisconsin say an armed student was shot after stabbing a school resource officer at a high school in Oshkosh Tuesday morning.

According to the Oshkosh Police Department, the incident happened inside Oshkosh West High School shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Oshkosh Police Chief Dean Smith says a 16-year-old student “produced a weapon” and stabbed the school resource officer, who then shot the student once.

The high school was put in lockdown during the incident. Officers cleared the school, which was declared secure at 11:15 a.m.

Emergency responders treated the student and school resource officer at the scene. The student and officer were then taken to local hospitals. Police believe their injuries are not life threatening.
