Shots fired inside Wisconsin high school, suspect in custody

Waukesha South High School is 'safe and secure' after a 'critical incident' Monday morning according to police

A student was wounded Monday morning after exchanging gunfire with a school resource officer at Waukesha South High School, just west of Milwaukee, according to a Waukesha School District spokesperson.

Police are investigating what they call a "critical incident" after gunshots were reported at a high school in Waukesha, Wisc. Jack says the resource officer went to the classroom to confront the student and get students in the room to safety.

The suspect is in custody.


The suspect is in stable condition, Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack told reporters. When the suspect refused to remove his hands from his pockets and ignored the officers, the suspect removed the gun from his waistband and pointed it at the officers, he said. They didn't immediately respond to a phone message seeking additional detail.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing school officials they did not name, said a student exchanged shots with a school resource officer. We are not seeking anybody else we have no other persons of interest.

Students who streamed out of the school about 11:15 a.m. said a drill was announced and they took cover under desks and teachers barricaded doors.
