Terrifying knife attack at US school caught on camera

New footage has emerged showing the frightening moment a high school student in the US lunged at classmates while wielding a pair of knives.

The 14-year-old was filmed attacking his fellow students at Procter R. Hug High School in Nevada on Wednesday, but was shot by a police officer and is now in a critical condition at Reno Hospital.

A Facebook post from a man believed to be the boy's father says he took the knives to school because he was being bullied by other students and had expected to be beaten up that day.

The school was placed into lockdown because of the incident, but students were able to return on Thursday (local time).
