Cop shoots ex-student who opened fire in high school

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

Illinois State Police has identified the man who authorities say fired shots outside a high school auditorium as seniors met for a graduation rehearsal. Bond was set at $2 million, though Milby remains hospitalized as of Wednesday night.

The suspect is a 19 year old former student.

The gunman ran when he saw the officer, who chased after him. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School did have a school resource officer, but instead of engaging the gunman Sheriff Deputy Scot Peterson hid, and 17 people died. That's when the officer fired back, hitting and injuring Milby.

House Bill 4208, filed by Rep. Emanuel "Chris" Welch, D-Westchester, would establish the Safe Schools and Health Learning Environment Program, which would provide competitive grant funding for districts aiming to reduce their reliance on law enforcement.

Authorities say students did exactly as they were trained to do when a school resource officer and a former student exchanged gunfire at a northern IL high school. The recently expelled student opened fire on school resource officer Mark Dallas.

When police searched the school they found that the faculty and students had barricaded themselves inside by blocking the classroom doorways with desks, chairs and other furniture - just as they had been trained to do.

Lockdown has been lifted at the other schools in the city about 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Chicago.

"With shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged towards the suspect and confronted him head on", Howell said.

Dixon High School police officer Mark Dallas spotted the suspect, a former student, with a gun. The last one was in Palmdale, California, on May 11 where one person was injured and a suspect was arrested. He says the teenager turned and shot at the officer, who then returned fire.

Mayor Liandro Arellano Jr also heaped praise on the quick actions of the school resource officer.

Dixon High School's school resource officer is being lauded for stopping a student who showed up with a gun Wednesday.

Armed school resource officers have been in the headlines since the February 14 massacre of 17 teens and educators at a Parkland, Florida, high school, where an on-duty resource officer did not confront the gunman, a former student of the school. In an interview with NBC News, Superintendent Margo Empen and Dixon High School Principal Mike Grady confirms the student was supposed to be at the graduation practice in the gym Wednesday.

Authorities haven't provided the gunman's name. "Because of his heroic actions, many lives were saved", Howell said. He says neither the officer nor anyone else was injured.

UPDATE: 11:53 a.m. EDT-The shooting at Dixon High School in IL took place on Wednesday morning inside the school's gym, where students were gathered to practice for graduation, the Chicago Tribune reported, citing City Manager Danny Langloss.
