Officer shot boy in wrist at Hawaii school, police say

Authorities say a police officer shot a 17-year-old runaway in the wrist at a Hawaii high school after the teen cut one officer with a knife and punched two others.

State Department of education spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz says Roosevelt High School officials recognized the boy as a runaway and called police after he showed up at the school Tuesday morning.

Maj. Richard Robinson, commander of the Criminal Investigations Department for Honolulu police, says the boy lunged at officers who arrived and tried to take him into custody.

Robinson says the teen attacked one of the officers with a knife, leaving his torso with a minor cut.

One of the officers then fired two shots, hitting the boy once in the wrist. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The public high school near downtown Honolulu was placed on locked, but students have since been released.
