Hawaii school shooting resulted in a runaway teen being shot in the wrist by police around 8:20 a.m. local time this morning. A 17-year-old boy attacked the officers at Roosevelt High School near downtown Honolulu. According to The Oregonian on Jan. 28, the boy punched officers and attacked one with a knife.

...The teen attacked one of the officers with a knife, leaving him with a minor cut on his torso. He also hit two other officers, but neither suffered serious injuries, he said.

Hawaii school shooting involved a teen, which school officials determined was not a student registered for classes. The school of 1,500 was put under lockdown this morning. Students were released to go home by 10 a.m.

The officers involved in the Hawaii school shooting were not injured seriously. The runaway teen boy who was shot was hospitalized for his injuries, none of which were deemed life threatening.

Sadly, Hawaii was one of only 12 states that had not yet suffered a school shooting, until today. Residents were shocked by the events in such a serene place.
