A Shoemaker High School student is facing a felony assault charge after an official said she assaulted a police officer on Thursday.

“Two female students got into an altercation,” said Terry Abbott, chief communications officer for the Killeen Independent School District, on Friday. “When ordered to stop by the Killeen ISD police officer on the scene, one of the girls, a 16-year-old tenth-grader, assaulted the police officer.”

Abbott said the girl has been charged with assault on a public servant, which is a felony, and sent to county juvenile detention.

Killeen police responded to the high school, 3302 S. Clear Creek Road, around 2:18 p.m. on Thursday, for an assault on a public servant call, according to data from the Community Crime Map.
