The students cleared tables and moved them behind the classroom door to block the entrance, Skyler Scott said, and then they quickly grabbed boxes and stacked them against the windows to block them from view from the outside.
Charges were filed against a student who was wounded by a police officer after firing shots in a northern Illinois high school hallway while staff and seniors were meeting for a graduation rehearsal, Illinois State Police announced late Wednesday. "Because of his heroic actions, countless lives were saved", Howell said.
The suspect was taken to hospital and is receiving medical treatment, police chief Steven Howell said during a press conference. But unfortunately, this isn't the first school shooting in the USA this yea, and these situations have quickly become every high school community's worst nightmare.
Yet, Dixon will not be remembered along with Parkland, Sandy Hook and Columbine.
Milby is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm in the Wednesday morning shooting at Dixon High School. That's clearly true, but first one thing has to happen before anything can go right - the shooter has to be confronted with deadly force. Dallas returned fire, shot him in the shoulder, and arrested him. "Thank god they didn't kill him".

With the likes of Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin shining in attack, Marseille have impressed throughout the campaign. Payet had rolled the ball through to Valere Germain in the opening five minutes only for the midfielder to fire wide.
An investigation into the shooting is underway. "His actions today also show the importance of school resource officers and the essential role they play in public safety by protecting students and teachers each and every day". We all did a really good job coming together, and I think in the face of such adversity, we handled it well. I think everyone did an unbelievable job of following directions and doing what they had to do.
There are questions that must still be answered. Howell declined to discuss why Milby brought a gun to the school. How was he able to get into the school easily? "He really put his life in danger and to save all the students and faculty in that school it was remarkable". Sauk Valley Media received some conflicting information Wednesday. His mother said he had been ostracized at school. Was it fortunate planning, or was it simply good fortune?
Howell said Dallas chased the suspect after he fled from the school. Thankfully, because the school district and the security officer on duty acted swiftly, there were no fatalities at Dixon High School this morning. No students or staff were injured in the incident.
Law enforcement in Dixon, Illinois praised a local school resource officer for taking down an armed intruder early Wednesday. For that, we're grateful.
