Officer shoots knife-wielding student at Reno-area High School (NSFW Video)

Note to this guy: You suffer a dexterity penalty when you dual-wield.

A 14 year old student at the ironically-named Hug High School in Reno, NV is in critical condition after being shot by a school resource officer. He was threatening classmates with multiple large knives and did not abide by the officer’s commands to drop the weapon.

From USNews.com:

(Police Chief) Soto told reporters at a news conference at police headquarters Wednesday night that he was “armed with at least one knife and threatening other students” during a fight at the high school in a working class neighborhood on the city’s north side.

The armed student failed to comply with the school police officer’s verbal commands to drop the knife, and the officer ultimately fired his service weapon, “striking the student and … stopping the threat,” Soto said.

“Once the threat was stopped, the officer immediately began to provide medical aid to the student until emergency medical assistance arrived,” Soto said. He refused to take any questions.

Hug High School was placed under lockdown and the 14-year-old was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center where he was in critical condition with a gunshot wound. The lockdown was lifted by midafternoon and students were released to their parents.

Below are some videos of the incident. It appears like a clean shooting to me. He was clearly lunging at people and he clearly was armed with multiple large knives.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    I woulda said, at least TWO knives, presuming that’s not a stick in his right hand. That boy was not smart.

    And all of the sheep just stand around and watch. Gotta get that on youtube I guess

    Note that the pharmaceutical companies and HIPAA will make sure you never know what drug(s) he was using for his depression/anxiety/etc so you won’t be able to link together mass shootings and knife attacks to their drugs’ side effects which are printed plainly on the info sheets.
