Officer hailed for confronting gunman at high school

One person has been shot in IL by the Police after that person opened fire on officers at Dixon High School, about 102 miles west of Chicago early Wednesday morning, according to Dixon City Manager Danny Langloss.

The suspect shot first at the school resource officer at Dixon High School before the officer returned fire, injuring him, City Manager Danny Langloss said in a statement. He says the teenager turned and shot at the officer, who then returned fire.

Howell's comments came at a press conference held Wednesday morning regarding the shooting incident that occurred shortly after 8 a.m.at the school, where a 19-year-old former student fired a gun near the west gym and was later shot and injured by the officer before being taken into custody. Rep Adam Kinzinger was briefed on the situation by Lee County Sheriff John Simonton. The officer was identified as a school resource officer, WQAD-TV reported. The officer fired back, wounding the suspect, who was then taken into custody.

Dixon High School remains on lockdown. During the pursuit, the suspect fired several shots at the officer but did not strike him.

The former student who was shot is believed to have sustained non-life threatening injuries and is now receiving medical treatment, Howell said. "All staff and students are safe, no injuries".

Parents were told to go to the baseball fields in Page Park, across the street from Dixon High School, to pick up their children. No students or staff were injured in the incident. The suspect's injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Dixon Police said they believed there was only one suspect and that there was no further threat.
