Nevada high school on lockdown after shots fired

One wounded and taken to local hospital

Nevada’s top police officer says a teenager was shot by a campus police officer at a Reno high school, and a second is sought in what he termed, an active investigation.

Nevada Department of Public Safety director James Wright says a 16-year-old was wounded and taken to a local hospital in the Wednesday shooting at Hug High School. 

Wright says the officer wasn’t injured, and the campus is on lockdown while police and sheriff’s deputies search for a second teenager, who may have been involved in the confrontation.

But Wright says it’s not certain another person was involved.

The shooting was first reported around 11:30 a.m.

A hospital spokeswoman didn’t have information about the condition of the wounded student.
