The mother of two boys who attend a Wisconsin high school where a shooting took place says it is a parent’s worst nightmare.

Stephanie Carlin, who is also a school board member at Oshkosh West High School, told The Associated Press Tuesday that one of her sons texted her to say, “it was crazy,” but that both of them are safe.

Police in Oshkosh say a police officer and an armed student whom he confronted at the school were both wounded in the confrontation Tuesday morning.

Carlin says “it’s terrifying” as a parent when something like this takes place.

School board president Barbara Herzog has not responded to a phone call seeking comment.

Police say there’s been another shooting at a Wisconsin high school in which an armed student was confronted by a police officer.

The shooting happened Tuesday morning at Oshkosh West High School. Oshkosh police say the student and the officer were injured and have been taken to hospitals.

It follows a similar shooting at Waukesha South High School in suburban Milwaukee on Monday morning, when a police officer shot an armed male student in a classroom. Officials say that student pointed a handgun at officers. The 17-year-old boy was wounded.
