Police say the Nevada high school student who was shot by a campus police officer was the only person wounded on campus.

Authorities won’t confirm if the 16-year-old student was armed with a knife, as another student reported, but they say no one was stabbed.

Reno police Officer Tim Broadway says police are investigating if there were any other weapons involved before the shooting about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at Hug High School.

The police spokesman also pleaded for people with video of the incident to turn footage over to Reno police.

Broadway says some video that he characterizes as “very disturbing” is being circulated.

But he says it doesn’t provide context about what he called “other events that led up to this incident.”

The 16-year-old was taken to Renown Hospital Medical Center but the hospital refused to disclose his condition.
