Fairfax County police and school officials are investigating an attack at Oakton High School last week involving a stun gun. Authorities issued a statement Wednesday after video of the incident was made public.

"The moment the school became aware of this incident we began an extensive investigation into this matter, which continues," wrote principal Jamie Lane in a letter to parents.

Lane said appropriate disciplinary action will be assigned, and that police are  continuing their investigation with the school's support. 

"Our primary responsibility is the safety and well-being of our students and staff," he said. "We will continue to be diligent in our efforts to provide a safe learning environment and instruct our students who see something to say something to a known adult, including parents and/or school staff."

NBC4 has the video of the stun gun attack.
