Honolulu police say a 17-year-old boy was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the wrist after he attacked three officers with a knife at Roosevelt High School.
Officers responded at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after school officials reported a teen runaway on campus.
“Upon their arrival there, when they entered the office that the suspect was in, he became combative, struck two of the officers. During that time, there were two civilians in the office, who both fled out of the office,” HPD Maj. Richard Robinson said. “He then brandished a knife and began slashing at officers. One officer drew his weapon, fired two shots, striking the suspect. After continued struggle, the suspect was taken into custody and walked out of school.”
According to Emergency Medical Services, the 17-year-old student was taken the Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.
Three officers were treated for minor injuries.
