Student, officer injured in another high school shooting in Wis.

An armed student confronted a police officer and both were wounded on Tuesday in the second high school shooting in Wisconsin in two days, both of which prompted lockdowns.

An armed student at Oshkosh West High School in Wisconsin confronted a school resource officer on Tuesday, according to police.

Meisel said a teacher came into the classroom looking nervous and told the students to get away from the windows and get into lockdown mode just before the lockdown was announced. "The student's parents were notified and informed about the serious nature of this incident". Parents are advised to check IC Parent Portal for additional information.

The incident has been turned over to the State Department of Criminal Investigations who will conduct the investigation. The 17-year-old boy was wounded.

That shooting happened after another student told a school resource officer that a classmate had a handgun, Jack said. The student was hospitalized in stable condition, police said. It was also not clear what weapon the student had.

The student then allegedly "removed the handgun from his waistband" and pointed it at the officer, who then shot the student. Authorities have not said if other students were in the classroom during the ensuing standoff.

No other pupils besides the armed student were hurt in the incident.

The investigation began after the words "Don't come Dec 6, School Shooting" were reportedly found November 21. Classes were canceled for the day and Wednesday at the high school.

Last year, armed guards at three high-profile school shootings - Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky; Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida; and Santa Fe High School in Texas - were unable to stop the rampages.
