“Shots were fired Tuesday morning at a Hawaii high school, causing injuries and prompting a lockdown, authorities said. Honolulu Department of Emergency Services spokeswoman Shayne Enright said the shooting happened at Roosevelt High School in Honolulu. Police and Department of Education officials didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment from the Associated Press.” That’s from detroitnews.com. [h/t Mr. Diggler] As Don S. links in the comments, it seems the only shots fired came from a member of the HPD . . .
Law enforcement sources tell Hawaii News Now the incident began when a Honolulu Police Officer was attempting to pick up a runaway. The runaway then allegedly stabbed the police officer and the officer fired back.
Paramedics confirm that at approximately 8:30 a.m., a 17-year-old male suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the wrist on the school’s campus. He was reportedly taken to an area hospital in serious condition. The report from Honolulu paramedics did not confirm if the injured person was a student. The police officer’s condition is not immediately known.
Gird your loins for calls for more knife control in paradise.
