3 Students Were Killed And 6 Others Injured In A Shooting At A Michigan High School

Three students were killed and six other people were injured in a shooting at a high school in Michigan on Tuesday, officials said. A 15-year-old student has been arrested.

Law enforcement received more than 100 calls to 911 about the shooting at Oxford High School, with the first coming at 12:51 p.m., Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said at a press conference. The shooting lasted five minutes before police took the 15-year-old, a sophomore at the school, into custody, he said.

One of the people injured was a teacher, McCabe said. Those injured have been transported to the hospital.

The 15-year-old did not resist arrest and has invoked their right to remain silent, McCabe said. Law enforcement also retrieved a semi-automatic handgun from him.

The village of Oxford is about 45 miles north of Detroit. The school was well-prepared in the event of a shooting, McCabe said; doors were marked and students and teachers barricaded themselves.

“You never want to prepare for something like this, but you have to,” he said.

Gun violence in the US has been labeled a public health crisis by the American Public Health Association. It is the leading cause of premature death in the country, responsible for more than 38,000 deaths annually. As of Nov. 30, at least 40,952 people have died from gun violence this year, data from the Gun Violence Archive shows.

The Oxford High shooting is the latest in a decadeslong string of deadly school shootings in the US. There have been at least 138 incidents of gunfire on school grounds this year, resulting in 28 deaths and 80 injuries, according to research from Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit advocating for gun control.

Investigators are still determining a motive for the shooting, but McCabe said they believe the teen acted alone.

In a statement, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer called the shooting “horrific,” saying she was heartbroken for the Oxford High community.

“As Michiganders, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect each other from gun violence,” Whitmer said. “We have the tools to reduce gun violence in Michigan. This is a time for us to come together and help our children feel safe at school.”
