MILWAUKEE – Linda Ager was out to lunch with a friend Monday when she received a phone call from her husband, Brett Hart, a special education teacher at Waukesha South High School in Wisconsin. 

“He didn’t say much,” Ager told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, part of the USA TODAY Network. “He just said there had been an incident at school and that there were rumors that he had been hurt, and that he was OK.”

A citypolice officer inside the high school had shot a 17-year-old student who pulled a gun in a classroom and refused to drop it, according to police.

The suspect wastaken into custody and was the only person injured in the incident, police said.

Ager said the incident took place in her husband’s classroom. 

“There was an altercation between students, and he stepped in between the students,” Ager said.

Hart restrained the student who had a gun, while other students left the room, Ager said. 

That’s when a student notified a school resource officer, she said.
