A 15-year-old junior high school student was arrested after a man was stabbed on a street in Hino, western Tokyo, with the arresting officer firing his gun once in an attempt to stop the boy from advancing toward him, police said Tuesday.

According to the Tokyo police, the officer was responding at 11 p.m. Monday to a call about a man who had been stabbed when he encountered the male student with a knife at the scene, and the boy charged at the officer while mumbling nonsensical words.
