Student dead after shooting police officer inside Tennessee high school: officials

DM

Authorities say a student at a Tennessee high school fired at officers and was killed by police just before the bell rang Monday, coming as the community reels from off-campus gun violence that has left three students dead this year. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David B. Rausch said at a news conference that police responded to a report of a possible gunman at Austin-East Magnet High School in Knoxville around 3:15 p.m. He says the officers encountered him in a bathroom and ordered him out but he wouldn’t comply. Rausch says that’s when he reportedly opened fire, and police fired back.
