KILLEEN, Texas — A Shoemaker High School student was transported to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center after allegedly assaulting a Killeen ISD police officer Friday morning.

In an email sent to parents, Principal Latisha Williams said the 15-year-old student made a verbal threat to a teacher, prompting the KISD police officer to come to the classroom.

Williams said when the officer arrived, the student assaulted the officer, causing him to go to the hospital.

The student was transported to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center to await formal charges.

"The safety of everyone on campus is always our highest priority, and violence such as this is unacceptable," Williams said.
