No one is saying what drove a 16-year-old high school student in Oshkosh to attack his school resource officer.
The officer is recovering after being stabbed, and the student is recovering after the officer shot him. It happened yesterday at Oshkosh West High School. No one else was hurt in the shooting. Students were sent home for the day after the attack.
On the heels of two shootings in two days the political discussions are firing up. One Wisconsin lawmaker wants something done after two officer-involved shootings at two different high schools over the past two days.
Democratic State Rep. Robyn Vining yesterday said people are scared and angry, and they are looking to lawmakers to act. Vining says guns are too easily accessible in Wisconsin. Monday’s shooting in Waukesha happened when a student wouldn’t drop his pellet gun.
Yesterday’s shooting in Oshkosh came after a student attacked the school resource officer with a knife.
