Dec 1, 2021: A 15-year-old boy is in custody after a shooting at an Oxford, Michigan high school on Tuesday afternoon killed three students and injured eight, officials said.
The Oxford High School student killed Tate Meyer, 16, Hannah St. Juliana, 14, and Madison Baldwin, 17, according to Auckland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.
Bouchard said eight others – seven students and a teacher – were shot. The condition of three is critical, including a 14-year-old girl who is on a ventilator after surgery. Bouchard said the condition of a 14-year-old boy who was shot in the jaw and head was critical. The condition of three students is stable and the teacher who was shot has been discharged.
Bouchard said there were many other non-life-threatening injuries as people were leaving the school.
He said most were treated and left in the staging area. Bouchard said the suspect, a sophomore at the school, was taken into custody two to three minutes after authorities opened fire without incident. Under-Sheriff Michael G. McCabe said the parents of the suspect hired a lawyer and did not allow him to speak to police. The suspect is being held at Oakland County Children’s Village, Auckland County Executive David Coulter said.
