"The school's Resource Officer immediately responded to the classroom, the SRO made efforts to secure the classroom by getting the other students to safety", Chief Russell Jack of the Waukesha Police Department said.

A school resource officer on Monday shot an armed 17 year old at a high school classroom in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a Milwaukee suburb, police said.

Eventually, police say the officer was forced to fire at the student when he would not remove his hands from his pocket.

Waukesha police and sheriff's deputies soon arrived at the school and tried to de-escalate the situation to no avail. Medical attention was administered, students were evacuated and the school was placed on lockdown, Jack said. Police didn't respond to a phone message seeking details or confirmation that a shooting took place.

"There has been a critical incident at Waukesha South high school", police said in a statement.
