The shooter started firing after he was confronted by the cop after turning up at Dixon High School in Dixon, Ill. around 8am Wednesday. The suspect was shot, but the injury does not appear to be life-threatening, Langloss said.

Dixon police believe the suspect acted alone and there is no further threat to public. No students or staff were hurt. Several police agencies responded to the scene. Further information will be released as it becomes available. Peoria Avenue will be closed. Parents can arrive there to pick up their child, and must have an ID to do so.

Students were originally taken to the nearby Armory following the incident and are being bused to the baseball field. Sauk Valley Media is reporting that the suspect is a 19-year-old former student of the school.

When we contacted the Dixon Police Department, they said they could not confirm or deny the report.
