An armed School Resource Officer took down an active shooter at Dixon High School at around 8 a.m. this morning in Dixon, Illinois. No one was injured except the suspect during an exchange of gunfire. The shooting happened in the gymnasium, where the Seniors had gathered for Graduation practice, since their last day is Friday.

SRO Mark Dallas immediately engaged the shooter, and wounded him. He was said to have non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured, even the officer who engaged him. The officer did exactly what he was supposed to do, and likely saved an enormous amount of lives.

The school was placed on lockdown, but police say there is no evidence of any further danger to the school or community.

The suspect is a former Senior, Matt Milby, 19, who had been recently expelled from the school according to the Daily Chronicle.
