A 14-year old high school student was wielding two knives on the school grounds when a campus cop takes him down with just one shot.
Logan Clark, student at Proctor R. Hug High School in Reno, Nevada, brought in knives because he was being bullied and thought he would be ‘jumped’ claimed his father in Facebook posts:
A high school student who lunged at his classmates with a knife in the schoolyard before being shot by police snapped after he had been bullied for days, it has been claimed.
The 14-year-old, who has been named locally as Logan Clark, was captured on camera wielding a large blade at fellow students at Procter R. Hug High School in Reno, Nevada, before refusing to put it down.
He was then shot by a school police officer after he failed to follow orders and is currently in a critical condition in a Reno hospital…
…Police had initially declined to confirm reports immediately after the 11.30am shooting that the teen had been armed with a knife.
But Police Chief Jason Soto said that the boy 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.
