US Officer Shoots Student Who Opens Fire at School

US Officer Shoots Student Who Opens Fire at School

Dixon High School remained the only school on lockdown shortly after 11 a.m., though all students had been reunited with their parents, Howell told WMAQ. Officer Dallas, who was on duty, confronted the student, then chased him as he ran out of the school. As the officer pursued the suspect, the offender fired several shots and the officer returned fire. Milby did not injure the resource officer in the attack.

House Bill 4208, filed by Rep. Emanuel "Chris" Welch, D-Westchester, would establish the Safe Schools and Health Learning Environment Program, which would provide competitive grant funding for districts aiming to reduce their reliance on law enforcement.

Lee County Sheriff John Simonton credited Dallas with "saving enormous amounts of lives" and said that "Certainly it is a horrific event that took place today, but it could have been a lot worse".

A "heroic" high school resource officer took down a campus shooter who opened fire inside a crowded gymnasium, authorities said Wednesday.

"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", FOP Labor Council Executive Director Shawn Roselieb said in a statement. They say students were rehearsing for a graduation ceremony at the time.

Lockdown has been lifted at the other schools in the city about 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Chicago.

An armed former student was shot at Dixon High School on Wednesday after exchanging gunfire with an officer, city officials said.

According to Dixon Police Chief Steve Howell at a press conference held earlier today, at approximately 8 a.m.an armed suspect fired several shots near the west gym. No one else was injured in the incident. The school's resource officer approached the gunman who then fled on foot. She's lived next to Dallas for over a decade. His injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

"We want social workers just as much as the schools do, but we don't want it to be an either-or situation", Winters said, adding that the Illinois Police Chiefs Association was initially opposed to the bill, but has shifted its stance to neutral since another amendment was made. The officer returned fire and hit the suspect. Authorities haven't provided the gunman's name. Multiple sources have identified the alleged shooter as Matt Milby, 19, reports Sauk Valley Media. "His fearless actions saved a lot of lives", Langloss said.
