FRESNO, Calif. - A police officer shot and killed a high school student Wednesday after the teenager attacked the officer with a baseball bat on campus, authorities said.

The officer fired after the 17-year-old boy at Roosevelt High School came up behind the officer and hit him in the head with the bat, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.

The officer fell down dazed, and reached for the gun in his hip holster, but the clip fell out. As the student came at him a second time, the officer grabbed a handgun from his ankle holster and fired one or two rounds, Dyer said. The student reportedly died within a few minutes.

"The officer was fortunate that he was able to defend himself," the chief said.

The reason for the attack was not immediately known. Dyer said there was no history of run-ins between the student and the officer, who was employed by the police department as the school's resource officer.

The student was described as a longtime Fresno resident who recently transferred to the school.

The officer was released from a local hospital Wednesday afternoon after being treated for a two-inch gash on the right side of his head, police said. He will be placed on administrative leave while the department reviews his conduct, Dyer said.
