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.

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