Officer shoots 2 juveniles after car strikes girl at Las Vegas high school

A school police officer shot two juveniles after their car struck a student at Western High School on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Clark County School District Police Department Lt. Bryan Zink said officers responded at 2:15 p.m. after a report of a fight and a “vehicle with a weapon” near the school, 4601 W. Bonanza Road. Officers were in the east parking lot around dismissal time when a car entered the lot “at a high rate of speed.” Officers ordered the driver to stop, but the car made a U-turn, struck a female student and then continued toward officers, Zink said, adding that the girl was not seriously injured.

An officer shot at the car, which then left the parking lot. Zink said family members of the two juveniles in the car took one of them University Medical Center and the other to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. Neither had life-threatening injuries, he said.
