Gunman shot by cop after opening fire at high school

An armed student has been injured by a school resource officer after an exchange of fire at a school in IL. Dixon city officials say a preliminary investigation shows the suspect shot at a resource police officer, the officer returned fire and the suspect was struck.

At 8:06 a.m. the Dixon Police Department received a report from the resource officer at the school of an armed male subject at the Dixon High School. The suspect was shot and is now in custody. The high school remains the only school on lockdown. "With shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged towards the suspect and confronted him head-on", Howell said.

Sauk Valley Media reports the former student involved in a shooting Wednesday morning is Matt Milby.

The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment of his wound, which did not appear to be life-threatening, Howell said. The school resource officer confronted the shooter who then ran out of the school.

"No students or staff were injured in the incident", the city statement added.




Students at Dixon High School are safe after a shooting in the school around 8:00 this morning.

The officer, who has been identified on social media as Officer Mark Dallas, will be placed on paid administrative leave as per police policy on shooting incidents.

"While removing students from the various classrooms, responding officers found the staff [and] students had barricaded the doors to the classrooms with desks, bookcases and other objects", Howell said.

Dixon is a city in Northern Illinois, about 100 miles from Chicago. He believes the suspect acted alone and that there are not further threats to student safety.

"It could have been a lot worse", Simonton said.
