The shooting at Procter R. Hug High School was first reported at around 11.30am, resulting in a code red lockdown, though the scene was considered stable and secure, Washoe County School District spokesman Riley Sutton stated. The 14-year-old boy, who has not been identified, was reported in critical condition Wednesday night at a Reno hospital.
The armed student failed to comply with the school police officer’s verbal commands to drop the knife, and the officer ultimately fired his service weapon, striking the student and stopping the threat.
And the threat was stopped, the officer immediately began to provide medical aid to the student until emergency medical assistance arrived.
