  • Police IL School Shooter was a Former Student

A recently expelled student in IL is in custody after he opened fire near the gym of his former school, where seniors at Dixon High were gathered for graduation practice, at around 8am Wednesday. "I thought it was going to be another mass shooting" Howell said Dallas ran toward the shots, coming face-to-face with 19-year-old Matt Milby, a former student, holding a gun.

Stehl officially graduated previous year and said the suspected gunman is a former friend of his, WMAQ reported.

Police Chief Steven Howell said at a news conference that the officer shot and wounded the lone gunman at Dixon High School about 8 a.m. Wednesday. He is receiving medical treatment for a non-life-threatening wound. The officer was not hit. "We are forever indebted to him for his service and his bravery". "He's just quiet, a good guy", described Nikki Scheidegger.

Dixon Police Department created the resource officer position in 2000 to help prevent this type of occurrence. Milby was the only person hurt in the incident, police said. "A complete hero. He saved countless lives".

During the ceremony, Netanyahu praised the Central American country for its long friendship and recognition of the Jewish State. Guatemala has opened its new embassy in Jerusalem , becoming the second country to do so after the United States.

"Although we have some good gun laws in IL, apparently they don't go far enough to create safe communities in IL", said David Simpson.

"We have FOP staff in Dixon today and they will assist local authorities wherever possible while continuing to provide the counseling and support that we give to IL law enforcement officers involved in on-duty shootings". His partner retired in 2008, according to the North American Police Work Dog Association. The officer was identified as a school resource officer, WQAD-TV reported. "The kids are safe if he's there", said Scheidegger.

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". "Then, all of a sudden, a teacher comes in and says, 'Go go go go!' and everybody floods out of the school ..."

Dixon High School was evacuated and parents are now being allowed to pick-up their children.
