The Associated Press reports that the teen cut one officer with a knife and punched two others. An officer then fired two shots, striking the boy once.

A 17-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the wrist and remains in serious condition at a local hospital, Emergency Medical Services told the KHON.

About a half-dozen parents, including Carolyn Richardson, gathered outside the school after word of the shooting spread.

"This is really freaking me out," Richardson told The Associated Press.

Richardson said she learned about it around 9 a.m. through a text from her son, CarDarow, a sophomore.

Her son told her he heard shots had been fired at the school, but that he was OK. She then used her cellphone to video chat with her son. "I told him, I gotta hear your voice," Richardson said.

Other parents outside the school also texted and talked on their phones to their children.
