Nevada Student Carrying Knife Shot By Campus Police Officer
This student was ordered to put the knives down and didn’t so the campus police officer did what he had to do to stop him from hurting anyone.
A frightening scene unfolded Wednesday at a Reno, Nevada, high school.
A student was captured on video waving knives and threatening fellow students before being shot by a campus police officer.
Fox News chief correspondent Jonathan Hunt joined Bill Hemmer Thursday on America’s Newsroom to provide more details of the incident.
Police responded to a call around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at Hug High School following an apparent altercation between two students. Soon after, a 14-year-old male student armed himself with a knife.
Additional photos and videos show the student appears to be carrying knives in each hand.
