Police shoot 14-year-old boy who threatened his schoolmates with knives, reportedly after being bullied for days
A post on social media appearing to be from the boy's father, Justin, claims the incident happened because his son was being bullied.
'To idiots that think Logan was wrong know he was being bullied he is not the kind to back down. He brought the knives because he was gonna b jumped and he was the school knew of this and failed to act,' Logan's father reportedly wrote.During the incident, the school was placed on lock-down prompting many parents to rush to the school gates. One of the parents claimed his son was a friend of the wounded student. He explained:
'He is my son's best friend. He's a victim and he's only 15 years old. He is over at my house almost every day. He's a good kid. All of his friends like him. Hell, even I love him and I don't like kids, The kids take bullying into their own hands, and he was shot for it.'The lock-down was lifted later on and students were released to their parents. In a statement released, the Police said:
'The armed student failed to comply with the school police officer's verbal commands to drop the knife, and the officer ultimately fired his service weapon, 'striking the student and ... stopping the threat. Once the threat was stopped, the officer immediately began to provide medical aid to the student until emergency medical assistance arrived.'The school officer has since been placed on routine paid administrative leave.
