A police officer confronted an armed student at a Wisconsin high school Tuesday morning and both were wounded, police said, in the second such shooting at a school in the state in as many days.
A student with a weapon reportedly confronted a school resource officer at Oshkosh West High School and both were taken to a local hospital.
Police said the SRO made efforts to secure the classroom by getting the other students to safety.
One of the officers - not the school resource officer - fired, striking the suspect, police said.
The incident shut down the high school, with students evacuated to a nearby middle school to reunite with their parents.
The Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation is leading the case.
Fox News reports the school where the incident unfolded is located just west of Milwaukee. No one else was injured in Monday's shooting.
It was the second message in a week warning of a potential shooting at a San Luis Obispo school for the week of December 2. Where are we going?
We value the openness of our students, staff, and parents in bringing matters to our attention. "I feel really sorry for our kids that they have to go to school in this environment". Authorities have not said if other students were in the classroom during the ensuing standoff. They were copying what they heard happened at Laguna Middle School, but with a different date.
At around 10 a.m. on Monday, a police officer at Waukesha South High School shot a male student allegedly armed with a gun.
A separate incident at a different school in the same city saw a 15-year-old boy taken into custody after police found him with a replica firearm later at his home, according to a police press release.
