A 16-year-old Oshkosh (WI) West High School student stabbed a school resource officer before the officer opened fire on the teen Tuesday morning, according to Oshkosh Police Chief Dean Smith.

A confrontation between the student and officer happened shortly after 9 a.m. in the school resource officer's office.

At 9:12 a.m., Winnebago County dispatchers received a call from the school resource officer requesting help and an ambulance. Two minutes later, the first responding officer arrived at the school at 375 N Eagle St.

The student and the officer were taken to a local hospital for treatment, WBAY reports. Chief Dean Smith does not believe their injuries are life-threatening.

No other students were hurt, according to the police. Smith says investigators believe only one student was involved.

Chief Smith says the student used an "edged weapon" but stopped short of saying it was a knife.

This is the second officer-involved shooting in a Wisconsin high school in two days. Monday a Waukesha school resource officer shot a student who reportedly pointed a handgun at him. The officer was not injured in that incident. The student was wounded and is expected to survive.
