Washoe County School District in Nevada confirmed Hug High School was on a code red lockdown late Wednesday morning because of a police officer involved shooting on campus.
Reno Police say one shot was fired about 11:30AM December 7, 2016, and one person was taken to a hospital, but are not saying who the victim is or how serious any injuries are, according to KOLO 8 News.
Robert Barragan, a freshman at the school told a Reno Gazette-Journal the following:
Two male students were fighting outside the school library. One of them pulled a knife and stabbed the other. A police officer then shot the knife-wielding student in the shoulder. The student fell to the ground and another officer arrived.
A Washoe County School District spokeswoman disputed this student’s account, saying only one person was injured.
