Waukesha Police: 1 arrested after 'critical incident' at Waukesha high school”

A 17-year-old student was shot and wounded inside his Wisconsin high school by a police officer after bringing a handgun into the building and failing to comply with orders to surrender the weapon, officials said.

A Waukesha South High School resource officer shot an armed student Monday after the student reportedly failed to follow officer commands.

"This is an isolated incident". Medical attention was administered, students were evacuated and the school was placed on lockdown, Jack said. The police chief did not release additional information.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports shots were exchanged between a student and a school resource officer.

Terry Schuster, the public relations director for the Waukesha School District, she hasn't heard of any injuries and did not know the condition of the school resource officer or the suspect, who is in custody.

Parents gathered outside and hugged students as they streamed out of the school in Waukesha, which is about 18 miles (30 kilometers) west of Milwaukee.

Students were dismissed for the day at 11:15 a.m., according to a statement from the school's principal. A call from The Associated Press to the school wasn't immediately returned.

The Waukesha Freeman and VDC Photo News both reported that one person was pulled out on a stretcher. They say they are not seeking any other suspects at this time.
