Hero staffer wounds United States school shooter, stops potential massacre

Hero staffer wounds United States school shooter, stops potential massacre

Milby faces three Class X felony charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm. He is being held in lieu of $2 million bond.

Leah is also a gradating senior from Dixon High School. A school resource officer confronted the shooter, who ran from the school and shot at the officer. Eventually the suspect was shot but not killed and was taken into custody just west of the high school. The officer was uninjured.

Howell said that students and staff at the school appeared to have acted coolly under stress during the incident. But Dixon School Superintendent Margo Empen confirmed that he was eligible to graduate with his classmates and had not dropped out or been expelled.

Empen said she could not provide further details because of school privacy laws.

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".

As a school resource officer confronted him, Milby shot at the officer, according to WIFR.

Multiple neighbors in the area say police were called to Milby's home multiple times over the last few years for family disputes.

Dixon Public Schools when on lockdown following the gunshots. Dixon Police Chief Steven Howell said, "We are forever indebted to him for his service and his bravery".

New details are emerging over the potentially deadly school shooting in Dixon, Illinois Wednesday, with local police confirming the school officer "charged towards the suspect" after he opened fire near the gymnasium. No one else was injured. Dallas returned fire, shot him in the shoulder, and arrested him.

Other students and community members voiced their praise for Officer Dallas. His wounds are not life-threatening. School will not be in session for Dixon High School students Thursday, but a note on the school's website said students may report to the building in the late morning to retrieve any personal items that they may have left during the terrifying ordeal Wednesday.

City manager Danny Langloss says students were gathered there for graduation practice when the officer exchanged gunfire with the gunman.

Authorities haven't provided the gunman's name, the AP said. "His courageous actions saved a lot of lives". She says Dallas is not only a standup officer but a standup man.
