Three students were killed Tuesday in a shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan.
Eight others, including a teacher, were also shot and injured in the shooting, authorities said. They were all transported to local hospitals where two were in surgery and six in stable condition with varied gunshot wounds, Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said during a briefing Tuesday evening.
The suspected gunman is a 15-year-old sophomore who was armed with a semiautomatic handgun. He was taken into custody within five minutes and is being held at the Oakland County Children’s Village, and is lodged as a juvenile.
“Deputies confronted him, he had the weapon on him and deputies took him into custody,” McCabe said. “The whole thing lasted five minutes.”
Police believe the shooter acted alone.
