Bob Thomas, the superintendent of Knox County Schools, tweeted later Monday that a shooting had occurred but the building had been secured.

One male has been killed and another arrested during a shooting at a United States high school that left a police officer in hospital. Police allege that the two fired multiple shots at his auto as he left school on a Friday afternoon. "There are no other known gunshot victims".

Knoxville Mayor Indya Kincannon told WVLT that the officer injured in the shooting is not in grave danger and is conscious and talking at the hospital. "It's a sad day for Knoxville and it's tough for Austin-East".

In February, two Austin-East students, 16-year-old Stanley Freeman Jr. and Janaria Muhammad, 15, were fatally shot, prompting the Federal Bureau of Investigation to offer a reward of up to $5,000 for information, according to a city of Knoxville press release. The school will be closed again Wednesday and Thursday. I thanked him for putting his life on the line to protect students and staff at the school.

The newspaper reported that the school was adding three school resource officers and stepping up patrols around dismissal time. It remains unclear why the student brought a gun to school.

In the meantime, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations is spearheading the investigation.

Governor Lee was briefed on the shooting just before a scheduled announcement on in-person and virtual learning in Tennessee schools. Lee backed the legislation over objections from law enforcement groups, who argued that the state's existing permit system provided an important safeguard for knowing who should or shouldn't be carrying a gun.

In other shootings since mid-March, a man opened fire at the cabinet-making plant in Texas where he worked last week, killing one person and wounding six others before he was arrested.
