  • Police in a Kansas City suburb say officers had to use a stun gun to get a high school student to drop a knife.
    The incident occurred Thursday at Shawnee Mission West High School in Overland Park.
    According to police, a school resource officer reported the 14-year-old boy entered the principal's office around lunchtime and pulled out a pocket knife. Police say the boy didn't threaten the principal but refused to drop the knife.
    The resource officer called Overland Park police, who say one of their officers deployed a stun gun on the boy to keep him from hurting himself or anyone else.
    The boy was taken to a hospital to be checked. Shawnee Mission district officials said the school staff had followed emergency plans throughout the incident.
