posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.18

A potential disaster was averted Wednesday morning after an armed officer shot a would-be school shooter at Dixon High School in Illinois; thwarting the attack before the gunman could reach other students.

The suspected gunman reportedly arrived at the local high school at approximately 8:00am, engaged the officer who returned fire, and was subsequently taken into custody.

A local journalist posted the report on social media within minutes, writing “School shooting at Dixon High School. School resource officer confronted a high-school aged gunman. That teen fired, and the resource officer fired back and hit the gunman. The resource officer was not hit. All Dixon schools now on lock down.”

“[Dixon City Manager] Langloss said he believes the suspect acted alone and that there are not further threats to student safety,” writes Time Magazine. “Dixon is a central Illinois city about 100 miles west of Chicago. Dixon public schools remain on lockdown.”
