"A 19-year-old former Dixon High student is in custody with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder after bringing a gun to the school this morning," says this story from saukvalley.com.
“We’re lucky the officer was there. His brave actions saved a lot of lives.”

This story from dailywire.com includes an update that says the suspect was identified as a “troubled student who was in fact still enrolled at the school but was ‘working independently out of the principal’s office.’” And that “Illinois State Police say he faces three felony counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and may face further charges. He was shoot twice in the shoulder.”
City Administrator Danny Langloss, whose daughter was one of the seniors in the gym, said the officer was not injured nor was anyone else, save the shooter.
“The woman said her son was bullied and ostracized at school, and was beaten up in October. Officials initially described [the suspect] as a former student, but the woman said [he] still attended Dixon High School, where he worked independently out of the principal’s office. He was slated to attend graduation rehearsal Wednesday, the woman said, but instead showed up with a gun.”
