The incident in Dixon, Illinois, unfolded when police received a report of an "armed male subject" in Dixon High School about 8am Wednesday, Dixon Police Chief Steven Howell said. He says when officers went inside the school, students and staff had barricaded the doors to the classroom in an effort to keep an intruder out.

Police have not said why the former student came to the school armed with a gun on a day when students were rehearsing for their upcoming graduation ceremony. Around 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, the suspect was reportedly confronted by a school resource officer.

No one else was hurt during the shooting.

Howell says the former student fired several shots near the school gymnasium and ran away when the officer confronted him. The suspect was shot and is now in custody. He says relationships built between law enforcement, emergency responders and the district were live-saving Wednesday. He was brought to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Danny Langloss, the Dixon city manager, told WGN-TV they do not believe the suspect was a student.

An armed IL school resource officer stopped a potential atrocity Wednesday morning when he shot a 19-year-old who brought a gun to the school.

Dixon Public Schools officials said high school students were being bused from the Illinois Army National Guard Armory near the school to the baseball fields. He said he thinks authorities may be releasing the name and age of the person in custody during the media event.

Sauk Valley Media said the sheriff identified the officer as school resource officer Mark Dallas. "His fearless actions saved a lot of lives", Langloss said.

Dixon is a central IL city about 100 miles west of Chicago.
