Police shooting of suspect, 14, under probe
A Pasadena ISD officer shot an eighth-grade student at Miller Intermediate School May 1.
The officer says he responded at 12:30 a.m. to a call to Miller Intermediate School, located at 1002 Fairmont Parkway in Pasadena, after the 14-year-old student tripped the school alarm while allegedly breaking into one of the portable buildings on campus.
Police say the boy saw the officer and ran, ignoring the officer's demands for him to stop, according to a Pasadena ISD police press release.
The officer then reportedly shot the eighth-grader once in the chest.
When more officers and medical workers arrived, the teen was transported by helicopter to a local hospital, where he was listed in critical, but stable, condition, police said.
An investigation into the shooting revealed the boy's backpack contained burglary tools, police said.
