WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — The Latest on a suburban Milwaukee high school shooting (all times local):

12:50 p.m.

A Wisconsin police chief says an officer shot an armed male student at a suburban Milwaukee high school after the suspect refused to disarm and pointed his gun at officers.

Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack says a student first warned the resource officer that a 17-year-old classmate had a gun at around 10:17 a.m. Monday. Jack says the resource officer went to the classroom to confront the student and get students in the room to safety.

Jack says Waukesha officers and sheriff’s deputies soon arrived to de-escalate the situation but the suspect “continued to ignore officers’ commands.” Jack says the officer who shot the student is an 11-year veteran of the Waukesha police department.

Jack said the suspect is in stable condition. The police chief did not release additional information.

A suburban Milwaukee high school is safe and a suspect is in custody after a “critical incident” Monday morning, police said following media reports of a shooting involving a student at the school.

Police in Waukesha tweeted that officers responded to the incident at Waukesha South High School around 11 a.m. Monday. Police didn’t respond to a phone message seeking details or confirmation that a shooting took place.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing unidentified school officials, said a student exchanged shots with a school resource officer. A call from The Associated Press to the school wasn’t immediately returned. The Waukesha Freeman reported a male was put into an ambulance.
