A 19-year-old who showed up at his former high school in northern IL and opened fire on a police officer working there was shot by the officer and taken into custody this morning.
Police say the former student acted alone and there's no further threat to the public.
"We have FOP staff in Dixon today and they will assist local authorities wherever possible while continuing to provide the counseling and support that we give to IL law enforcement officers involved in on-duty shootings". Per USA Today, agents from the ATF's Chicago and Rockford, Ill., offices have been sent to Dixon to assist with the investigation.
"No students or staff were injured in the incident", the city statement added. The suspect is receiving medical treatment and is in custody.
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 one else was hurt.
Police said the man turned and fired at the officer when he tried to chase him down.
19-year-old suspect, whom authorities did not name, went into hiding when he began to approach officer mark Dallas (Dallas Mark), who saw the young attacker took a few shots.
The shooting happened at 8:06 Wednesday morning near the gym of Dixon High School. Howell says because of his actions, there were no injuries to students, staff and the public. "His fearless actions saved a lot of lives", Langloss said.
High school students are being bused from The Armory to the Page Park baseball diamonds.
