A knife-wielding high school student in Nevada is in critical condition after a campus police officer shot him outside the school's library Wednesday.
Video of a knife-swinging student being shot by a cop in Nevada has gone online while the boy was listed in critical condition at a Reno hospital.
The dramatic moment at Hug High School was filmed and posted to social media by fellow students in videos that have since been removed as police investigate the incident.
The police stated that no one was hurt except the student who was shot.
The report stated that, according to authorities, the incident began as an altercation between two students then escalated after one of the students wielded a knife and threatened to attack others. He said the police officer shot the knife-wielding student in the shoulder area.
That officer then gave the wounded student first aid.
The student was eventually taken to Renown Regional Medical Center.
The suspect's father wrote on Facebook that his son was bullied and that "he brought the knives because he was gonna be jumped", reports KTVN.
Reno police Officer Tim Broadway acknowledged in the hours after the shooting that numerous more than 40 students who witnessed the incident at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday also shot cellphone video, but said at the time the question of whether the teen was armed remained under investigation.
The shooting was reported about 11:30 a.m. (2:30 p.m. ET) at the school on the city's north side, a few blocks from U.S. Highway 395.

Reno Police said the school has since been "rendered safe" by police and students have been released after the campus went into lockdown. Another parent, who claims his son is friends with the gunshot victim, told the Reno Gazette that the boy "had been bullied for days".
But he says it doesn't provide context about what he called "other events that led up to this incident".
"Officers appeared to have detained a group of teens behind the school shortly after the incident", the Gazette-Journal reported.
"We didn't think much of it until we saw students running away", said Freddy Navaro, a sophomore at Hug High.
A police spokesman said more than 40 students witnessed the scene, with some recording it on their phones and posting it to social media.
Hug freshman Robert Barragan also said he witnessed the shooting and provided the same details.
