An officer shot an armed 17-year-old student in a Wisconsin high school classroom on Monday, according to police reports.

The suspect is in stable condition, and there were no other injuries.

A school resource officer had rushed to the classroom after a student saw a classmate with a handgun, according to authorities. The incident took place at Waukesha South High school.

Other officers responded and attempted to have a conversation with the suspect, but he refused to take his hands from his pockets and ignored the officers. He then removed the gun from his waistband, pointing it at the officers.

An officer fired, striking the suspect. Medical attention was given, and the school was evacuated and placed on lockdown.
