The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:
An “active shooter” incident occurred at Kennedy Middle School Monday night, the Germantown Police Department said. An officer with the department said no injuries occurred at the school, but the Wisconsin Department of Justice issued a statement around midnight saying the suspected shooter was shot by Germantown officers shortly after 6:36 p.m.
Police initially responded to the school, located at N118 W15860 Williams Drive in Washington County, for a report of a subject “acting erratically” in the parking lot of the school. The DOJ said the person was able to climb onto the roof of the school and two officers pursued on foot.
The DOJ said about 50 to 70 students were inside the school at the time of the shooting. The Germantown School District said in a Facebook post that classes for Tuesday in all Germantown schools have been canceled.

Kathy and I are thinking of the students, staff, and families affected by the events at Kennedy Middle School last night. We’re grateful for the officers who responded swiftly to keep our kids safe, and we are praying for the Germantown community as they recover and heal.
