An officer confronted an armed 19-year-old man who opened fire at an IL high school Wednesday morning, an encounter that ended with the suspect injured and in custody.

Langloss says the school resource officer confronted a male subject who had a gun on school property. School resource officer confronted a high-school aged gunman. The suspect was shot and is now in custody.

All Dixon schools are on lockdown while the investigation proceeds; a news conference will be held later today.

Dixon City Manager Danny Langloss said students were gathered in the school gymnasium for graduation practice when the gunfire exchange occurred.

Lee County Sheriff John Simonton tells Sauk Valley Media he is a 19-year-old former student.


There is a debate over school resource officers/armed guards at schools.

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.

The man is being treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder officials said. Howell says because of his actions, there were no injuries to students, staff and the public. The officer, who was not identified, was placed on paid administrative leave as is standard in similar cases, according to the chief. "Because of the school resource officer and the schools itself, it wasn't".

Howell said there is no further threat to the school and police are confident the gunman acted alone. No students or staff were injured.

Howell also praised the response of students and staff who followed training by sheltering in place and barricading classroom doors with bookcases and desks, Howell said. "Parents are to go there to pick-up their children".
