Police are unaware of any warning signals regarding a student suspected of opening fire at Oxford High School in Oxford Township on Tuesday. The open fire killed three people and injured eight others, according to Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe.
The nightmare at Oxford High School in Michigan began with gunshots, screams, and an urgent warning over the loudspeaker. The terrified kids then blocked doors, called for assistance, and gathered whatever they could in case they meant to combat back.
Aiden Page, a senior, was in a classroom when he heard two gunshots Tuesday afternoon, part of what authorities described as a sophomore’s “absolutely cold-hearted, murderous” spree that killed three students and injured eight others. This seemed to be reportedly the deadliest school shooting in the United States since 2018.
And over a hundred 911 calls were made. Officers discovered a suspect — a 15-year-old — within two to three minutes after arriving and put him into jail without incident, according to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.
Investigators stated that Madisyn Baldwin, 17, Tate Myre, 16, and Hana St. Juliana, 14, died in the incident at the school about 40 miles north of downtown Detroit. According to Bouchard, Myre died in a patrol car while being transported to the hospital by a deputy. Eight people were shot, including seven kids and a teacher. On Wednesday morning, two people were in a serious state.
The suspect was being housed at Oakland County Children’s Village, a juvenile prison facility, according to authorities. County Executive David Coulter said he was kept on constant watch and was checked on every 15 minutes.
