3 students killed in Michigan school shooting – rt usa news

At least three students were killed and six others were injured in a school shooting in Oakland County, Michigan, north of Detroit. A 15-year-old suspect who police say acted alone and used a handgun is in custody.

“We have an alleged shooter in custody with a handgun”, Oakland County Deputy Sheriff Mike McCabe said Tuesday.

Police believe the suspect acted alone in the Oxford High School attack and used only one weapon. He surrendered to the deputies without further incident.

The FBI is helping local law enforcement and examining the suspect’s social media for a potential motive.

Oxford is a suburban township approximately 40 miles (64 km) north of Detroit. Police received a call at 12.51pm local time about an active gunman at Oxford High School. MPs took the suspect into custody within five minutes, the sheriff’s department said. A deputy assigned to the school assisted in the arrest.

The school was evacuated and the students were reunited with their parents and relatives in a nearby parking lot.
