Associated Press

CONWAY, S.C. — A coroner says a South Carolina police officer shot and killed a 16-year-old student who stabbed him at a high school.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge says Trevor Varinecz died of multiple gun shot wounds Friday.

Authorities said Varinecz pulled a knife and fought briefly with an officer as school started Friday morning at Carolina Forest High School in Conway.

Horry County schools spokeswoman Teal Britton said the boy asked to speak to the officer. She says the teen stabbed the officer after the two went into an office.

A hospital spokeswoman said the officer was being treated and was in good condition.
