Student and school resource officer injured in second high school shooting in Wisconsin this week

Students depart Oshkosh West High School where a 16-year-old student was shot after the student attacked a police officer on Tuesday, December 3.

(CNN)A Wisconsin school resource officer on Tuesday shot and wounded a student who stabbed him during an altercation, police said. It was the second shooting to take place in a high school in the state in two days.

The incident occurred shortly after 9 a.m. in the office of the school resource officer at Oshkosh West High School in Oshkosh, about 90 miles northwest of Milwaukee, police said.
At 9:12 a.m., police received a garbled radio transmission from the school resource officer, who requested assistance and an ambulance, according to Oshkosh police Chief Dean Smith. The first responding officer arrived two minutes later.
The 16-year-old student stabbed the officer with an "edged weapon" before being shot by the officer with a 9 mm pistol, Smith said. Both the student and officer were being treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries, Smith said.
    Smith said investigators were looking into whether there were warnings about the incident on social media. "We believe there was only one suspect involved ... and this incident was isolated to this encounter," he said.
    Earlier, police said in a Facebook post that an armed student confronted a school resource officer, and both were injured and taken to local hospitals.
    The school was on lockdown and parents instructed to reunite with their children at Perry Tipler Middle School, police said.
    "Today's incident was a contained situation," said Vickie Cartwright, Oshkosh Area School District superintendent.
    "First and foremost, we are so grateful for the proactive safety measures in place throughout our district as well as our partnership with local and state law enforcement. Our students and staff followed our emergency protocols."
    She said classes will be canceled on Wednesday and counselors made available. The high school has about 1,700 students.
    "Today's tragic event shows that trained school resource officers can help save lives," Cartwright said.
    The state's division of criminal investigation has taken over the investigation.
