IL student shot after pulling gun on school officer

A 19-year-old suspected gunman was shot by a school resource officer Wednesday outside a high school in Dixon, Ill. after the suspect opened fire inside the school building, police said.

A Dixon Police Officer is credited with stopping an armed suspect at approximately 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.

According to the investigation so far, after being confronted by the officer, the suspect fired at him. Howell declined to discuss why the former student brought a gun to the school. Dixon Mayor Liandro Arellanno Jr. expressed gratitude for the outcome and praised the officer.

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

The male student was injured in the exchange.

The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment of his wound, which did not appear to be life-threatening, Howell said. 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".

Officials said no one was injured in the confrontation.

The officer returned fire, injuring the armed suspect.

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

"Because of his heroic actions, countless lives were saved".

UPDATE: Dixon's city manager has confirmed there was a shooting at the high school.

President Trump slammed Scot Peterson as a coward for failing to confront shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Parents were being told to pick up their children at nearby Al Morrison Baseball Field, WQAD reported.
