[Ed. – A curse on this gun violence.]
A spokesman for the Honolulu Police Department told reporters three officers went to Roosevelt High School after a 17-year-old runaway showed up at the school.
After police encountered the young man in a school office, he “became combative” and struck two of the officers, the spokesman said.
The 17-year-old pulled out a knife and “began slashing” the officers, the spokesman said. An officer fired two shots at the boy before subduing him.
Three officers received minor injuries.
Emergency Medical Services Division told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser a 17-year-old boy was shot in the wrist and was taken to the local hospital.
