Police officer shoots, wounds armed suspect at IL school

A 19-year-old former student was shot by a police officer after arriving at Dixon High School with a weapon this morning. The gunman then fired several shots toward the officer, who shot back, wounding the suspect. While all Dixon public school were put on lockdown earlier in the day, only Dixon High School remains on lockdown. The officer confronted the suspect, who exited the school and began running westbound on Armory Drive. The former student ran away and out of the school. He said he thinks authorities may be releasing the name and age of the person in custody during the media event. Shortly thereafter the suspect was taken into custody and transported for medical attention of non-life threatening injuries. He is expected to recover. No students or staff were injured, thanks to the actions of the officer, Howell said.

Dixon is a central IL city about 100 miles west of Chicago.

A male armed with a gun opened fire on an officer at Dixon High School in IL on Wednesday morning. They have been going through training on what to do during an active-shooter situation.

"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". "A lot of things went right today, when a great many of them could have gone wrong", Dixon Mayor Liandro Arellano Jr. said at a press conference Wednesday.

Sauk Valley Media said the sheriff identified the officer as school resource officer Mark Dallas.

An Illinois school resource officer stopped an armed teenager at a high school this morning, according to the local police chief, who applauded the officer for saving "countless" lives. The officer, whose identity had not yet been released, was hailed as a hero for stopping the shooter.
