Sheriff's officials said a 15-year-old suspect had been taken into custody and a handgun was recovered.

“We have one suspected shooter in custody along with a handgun. We do not believe there are any other at this time,” Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said in a statement.

Oakland County Sheriff officials were on the scene at Oxford High School earlier in the day after calls of an “active shooter” were reported at the facility.

Parents were told that students were being evacuated as authorities searched the area before confirming the suspect was in custody.

McCabe said about 15 to 20 shots were fired and the shooting lasted only five minutes before the sophomore was arrested.

The severity of the victims' injuries was not immediately known.

“We received over 100 911 calls to our dispatch center,” McCabe said in a press conference.

“There were no other guns, no other shooters. As far as we know,” the undersheriff added.

According to McCabe, the suspect has “already invoked his right to not-speak; he wants an attorney.”

After the press conference, students were pictured being consoled by their parents as school buses lined up outside.

Others were seen on the phone as the students stood huddled together in groups in the snowy weather.

Cars were also lined up outside as students were allowed to make their way home.

POLICE SWARM CAMPUS

A mass of law enforcement from across the region descended on the Oakland County school, covering roads with armed sheriff deputies, police vehicles, ambulances, and other emergency personnel.

Two medical helicopters were seen landing on the parking lot of the school following the shooting.

According to Local 4, the shooting happened around 12.55pm in the hallway of the school.

School officials said emergency protocols were activated as the school was placed on lockdown.

“There is an active emergency occurring at Oxford High School right now,” Oxford Community Schools sent out in a message to parents and guardians.

“Oakland County Sheriff’s Department (deputies) are on the scene and we have activated our emergency protocols and placed the school into lockdown.

“We will send more information to you as we know it. Please do not go to the school.”

Police are asking parents not to come to the facility but instead are encouraged to pick up their kids at the Meijer parking lot, across the street from the school.

As of 2pm local time, Oakland County Sheriff officials said they doing a “secondary search of the school for any further victims.”
