At least three people are dead after a shooting at a high school in Oxford, Michigan, police say.

At least six others were also injured, and a suspect is in custody. One of the injured is a teacher, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

“At 12:51pm, the first 9-1-1 call was placed about an active shooter at Oxford High School,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Facebook. “Dispatch received over 100 9-1-1 calls during the incident.”

Police say only one person is currently suspected in the shooting: a student at the school.

“A 15-year-old sophomore student of Oxford High School has been taken into custody and the handgun was recovered,” the Sheriff’s Office said. “There was no resistance during the arrest and the suspect has asked for a lawyer and has not made any statements as to a motive.”

Parents have been asked to avoid the campus and to instead pick up students who have left the premises at the parking lot of a nearby store.

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer has issued a statement on the shooting, offering her condolences to the Oxford community and thanking first responders – and also speaking out on what she called a “crisis” of gun violence.

“As Michiganders, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect each other from gun violence,” Ms Whitmer said. “No one should be afraid to go to school, work, a house of worship, or even their own home. Gun violence is a public health crisis that claims lives every day. 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.”

Mother says threats had been circulating at school

21:13 , Nathan Place

A mother whose son attends Oxford High School says there had been threats of violence at the school long before today’s shooting occurred.

“This couldn’t be just random,” Robin Redding told the Associated Press. “Kids just, like they’re just mad at each other at this school.”

Ms Redding’s son, 12th grader Treshan Bryant, said he had a bad feeling about going to school on Tuesday morning, and stayed home to study online instead. He told AP he had heard threats about a potential shooting “for a long time now.”

“You’re not supposed to play about that,” Treshan said. “This is real life.”

It didn’t take long for missed indicators to begin to come out.

“Robin Redding, the parent of a 12th-grader, told The Associated Press that there had been rumblings of trouble at the school.” 1/2https://t.co/2J2m7suGaO
