KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

A Killeen police officer is under investigation after an incident involving a 9-year-old at an elementary school Friday morning.

According to a press release, the off-duty officer went to visit Bellaire Elementary School on Jasper Rd. on personal business.

When the officer was walking in the hallway, he overheard a disturbance in a near by class room.

He told the people inside that he was a police officer and identified the boy causing trouble.

While the officer and a staff member were taking the 9-year-old to the principle's office, the boy began to resist and the officer had to restrain him. That's when other staff took control of the situation.

The boy was found with minor injuries. As a result, the Killeen police Department is conducting a criminal investigation to see if the boy's injuries happened during the incident and why they are there.

The officer involved was placed on routine administrative leave pending the results of the investigation. 

The Killeen Independent School District released the following statement Friday afternoon:

"The Killeen Independent School District considers all matters involving the safety of students and staff as a top priority and we remain committed to ensuring safe learning environments for all students. The alleged incident at Bellaire Elementary is currently being investigated and will be handled appropriately."
