Officials: Teen shot by campus police officer at high school in Reno; second teen sought
RENO, Nevada — Nevada’s top police official says a teenager was shot by a campus police officer at a Reno high school, and a second is sought in what he termed an active investigation.
Nevada Department of Public Safety Director James Wright says a 16-year-old was wounded and taken to Renown Hospital Medical Center in the Wednesday, December 7th shooting at Hug High School.
Wright says the officer wasn’t injured, and the campus is on lockdown while police and sheriff’s deputies search for a second teenager who may have been involved in the initial confrontation.
But Wright says it’s not certain another person was involved.
The shooting was first reported about 11:30 a.m.
A hospital spokeswoman didn’t have information about the condition of the wounded student.
