The 15-year-old is in custody after being arrested at the school. Officers also recovered a semi-automatic handgun and ammunition.

The gunman’s motive remains unclear, said Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe.

Officers responded at around 12:55pm local time to a flood of 911 calls about an active shooter.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the suspect or victims but confirmed one of those injured was a teacher.

Tim Throne, the superintendent of Oxford Community Schools, said: “I’m shocked. It’s devastating.”

The school was placed on lockdown after the attack, with some children sheltering in locked classrooms while officers searched the premises.
