DEVELOPING STORY: At least three students are dead and many others are injured after a gunman opened fire at a Michigan high school. At least six others were injured – including a teacher and five students.
“It’s a very tragic situation,” Undersheriff Michael McCabe said at a press conference.
Police say the shooting happened at Oxford High School in Oakland County, 40-some miles north of Detroit.
A 15-year-old student, a sophomore, was taken into custody shortly after firing between 15 and 20 shots during the fatal attack, according to police. He has reportedly invoked his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.
“He didn’t give us any resistance when he was taken into custody,” McCabe said. “The whole thing lasted 5 minutes.”
The school was placed on lockdown while some students sheltered in place in locked classrooms.
“I’m shocked. It’s devastating,” Tim Throne, Oxford Community Schools superintendent, said.
