A potential school shooting in central IL ended when a school resource officer shot and wounded an armed former student who opened fire Wednesday morning.
"With shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged toward the suspect and confronted him head-on", he said.
Armed school resource officers have been in the headlines since the February 14 massacre of 17 teens and educators at a Parkland, Florida, high school, where an on-duty resource officer did not confront the gunman. The man was shot and then taken into custody. Sadly, schools and other gun-free zones are targets for insane people.
City manager Danny Langloss told Sauk Valley Media that students had been gathered in the gym for graduation practice when the shooting happened.
Howell praised the officer for saving lives. Time reports he suffered non-life threatening injuries and is now receiving medical treatment. The officer confronted the suspect, who exited the school and began running westbound on Armory Drive.
According to Sauk Valley, Milby was a senior at Dixon High School but was recently expelled, and thus not graduating with the rest of his class. No students or staff were injured, thanks to the actions of the officer, Howell said. "All staff and students are safe, no injuries".
In regard to the students and teachers, Simonton said they were prepared and that they did exactly what we asked them to do. The suspect's injuries are believed to be non-life threatening. "Parents are to go there to pick-up their children". He is in custody. The officer was not injured, nor was anyone else, Langloss said. "Dixon Police believe the suspect acted alone and that there is no further threat to the safety of students or staff", Dixon officials said in a statement on Facebook.
