SRO stops school shooter in IL

SRO stops school shooter in IL

A student with a gun walked into the gymnasium at Dixon High School, where his classmates were practicing for graduation Wednesday morning.

All schools in the city, in Lee County and about 80 miles west of Chicago, have been placed on lockdown while the shooting is investigated. Students were confused about what the sounds were, and majority thought that they were firecrackers. They say official confirmation has not been made. The school's resource officer approached the gunman who then fled on foot.

Milby, 19, was reportedly recently expelled from the school, although it was unclear why, according to Sauk Valley Media. No one else was wounded in the incident. Milby is expected to recover. This was as per the training they had received on what to do when their school was faced with a shooter. There will be a heightened police presence at those schools.

That's where Leah was reunited with her mother and brother, who is also a student at the high school.

One student who was present when the shooting broke out described his experience. Dallas is a 15 year veteran of the Dixon Police Department. This is a story 13 News will continue to follow and bring you any updates as soon as they become available. "He went in and faced the problem head-on". The website adds that gym teacher Andrew McKay slammed the door to the gym and told the students "go, go, go".

"At that time, a lot of people in my class were crying".

Authorities say students did exactly as they were trained to do when a school resource officer and a former student exchanged gunfire at a northern IL high school. "I feel like Mr. McKay is a hero". With shots ringing through the hallways of the school, he charged towards the suspect and confronted him head on. Dixon Mayor Liandri Arellano Jr. commended the officer for his actions.

It could have been so much worse. Bond was set at $2 million.

He was even beaten up in school in October 2017. "I know that he's been very sad for a long time", she said.

"I think we were all prepared, and we had our natural instincts", said Kylie Shaw, a senior at Dixon High who was in the gym. Milby ran away and out of the school. "Then, all of a sudden, a teacher comes in and says, 'Go go go go!' and everybody floods out of the school, running over to pizzeria".

"We are extremely grateful that all of the students and staff at Dixon High School will be able to return to their homes unharmed today".
