OSHKOSH, Wis. — According to the Associated Press, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has a personal connection to the high school where a 16-year-old student was shot by a resource officer after stabbing him. Evers said Tuesday that two of his children graduated from Oshkosh West High School when his family lived there. The shooting in Oshkosh came a day after a 17-year-old student pointed a pellet gun at another student’s head in a confrontation that led to a police officer shooting the teenager at a Waukesha high school. Evers says events over the past two days show “that we can’t keep pretending that this only happens in other communities or in other states.” Evers says violence in schools can’t be accepted as a foregone conclusion and that “we have to … do everything we can to keep our kids and our communities safe.” Police in suburban Milwaukee say a 17-year-old student pointed a pellet gun at another student’s head in a confrontation that led to a police officer shooting the teenager. Police said Tuesday that a school resource officer and a detective began talking with the student at Waukesha South High School after the fight between students on Monday. Police say the teen had a gun in his hand when an officer shot him once in the leg and twice in the arm. Authorities immediately gave the student first aid, stopping the bleeding. The student is in stable condition . Police found two firearms in the classroom and say both were pellet guns. Police later searched the student’s home and found more pellet guns. A 16-year-old student at Oshkosh West High School stabbed a school resource officer before the officer shot the student. Oshkosh Police Chief Dean Smith says the teenager entered the officer’s office at the school on Tuesday morning, produced a weapon and stabbed the officer. Smith described the student’s weapon as an edged weapon but did not elaborate. The officer shot the student once. The officer and student have been treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The officer is a current police officer with the Oshkosh Police Department. Smith says the investigation is ongoing. The mother of two boys who attend a Wisconsin high school where a shooting took place says it is a parent’s worst nightmare. Stephanie Carlin, who is also a school board member at Oshkosh West High School, told The Associated Press Tuesday that one of her sons texted her to say, “it was crazy,” but that both of them are safe. Police in Oshkosh say a police officer and an armed student whom he confronted at the school were both wounded in the confrontation Tuesday morning. Carlin says “it’s terrifying” as a parent when something like this takes place. School board president Barbara Herzog has not responded to a phone call seeking comment.
