A 19-year old former student at the high school in Dixon, Illinois (south of Rockford), fired several shots inside the building this(Wed) morning, but didn’t hit anyone, and the school resource officer chased the suspect outside.

When the man began shooting again, this time at the officer, he missed and the policeman returned fire, hitting the suspect and wounding him. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. The suspect is in custody.

Tim Lee of our companion(NRG) station in Dixon, WIXN-AM, says further information is not yet being released.

Lee says the community’s so-called “ALICE” training…which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate…worked well, and there were no other injuries.
