Former student in custody after shooting at Dixon High School

'Things could have gone much worse': Former student is shot by officer during gunfire exchange at Dixon High School

Mark Dallas, 50, is being hailed a hero after shooting a 19-year-old gunman, Matt Milby, who opened fire Wednesday morning at Dixon High School in IL.

Dixon High School in IL is on lockdown after shots were fired inside this morning.

In March, a police officer posted at a Maryland high school shot and killed a 17-year-old boy who had opened fire on two fellow students.

Authorities haven't provided the gunman's name or the school resource officer.

Dixon Police Chief Steven Howell Jr. praised Dallas, saying, "I could not be more proud of the police officer and the way he responded to the situation". Julie grew up with Dallas, the school resource officer. "A complete hero. He saved countless lives".

The teenager was taken into custody near the school and is now under medical supervision. "Thankfully, because the school district and the security officer on duty acted swiftly, there were no fatalities at Dixon High School this morning". The school's resource officer approached the gunman who then fled on foot.

"We're lucky the officer was there", Langloss - whose daughter was among the seniors in the gym - told SaukValley.com. No students or staff were injured in the incident. "I thought it was going to be another mass shooting" Howell said Dallas ran toward the shots, coming face-to-face with 19-year-old Matt Milby, a former student, holding a gun.

"My heart right now is racing a million miles a minute", James Johnson, the father of two kids attending Dixon High School, told WQAD. The officer returned fire and hit the suspect.

No one else was hurt during the shooting.

No other students or staff were injured. The young man is now in custody and is receiving medical treatment for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
