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. At that point, he was confronted by a school resource officer. Preliminary investigation shows the suspect shot at the police officer, the officer returned fire, and the suspect was injured.
UPDATE: 11:53 a.m. EDT-The shooting at Dixon High School in IL took place on Wednesday morning inside the school's gym, where students were gathered to practice for graduation, the Chicago Tribune reported, citing City Manager Danny Langloss.
In regard to the students and teachers, Simonton said they were prepared and that they did exactly what we asked them to do. "At which time, the officer returned fire and struck the suspect". Shortly thereafter the suspect was taken into custody and transported for medical attention of non-life threatening injuries.
"While pursuing the suspect, the suspect shot several rounds toward the officer", Howell said.
The suspect was taken into custody, Howell said. He said the names of the officer and the suspect are not being released. His comments were echoed by Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, who in a statement credited "school resource officer Mark Dallas for his bravery and quick action to immediately diffuse a risky situation".
