Officer Shoots Student Who Opened Fire at Illinois High School

'Things could have gone much worse': Former student is shot by officer during gunfire exchange at Dixon High School

A police chief says a school resource officer saved lives when he confronted an armed 19-year-old former student at a high school in northern IL. The officer returned fire and injured the suspect, the City of Dixon said in a Facebook post about the incident.

It was not clear whether the suspect was a student at the school, and officials did not immediately respond to calls for further comment. At that point, Howell, Jr., said, the subject was confronted by the school resource officer. This report was put out by the resource officer assigned to the school.

The former student who was shot is believed to have sustained non-life threatening injuries and is now receiving medical treatment, Howell said.
