Fourth student dies in Oxford high school shooting


A fourth victim died after a student opened fire at a Michigan high school on Tuesday, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday. The victim has been identified as Justin Shilling, 17.

Police said they responded to Oxford High School just before 1:00 p.m. Tuesday after receiving reports of an active shooter at the scene. The suspected gunman, who was identified as a 15-year-old sophomore at the school, fired 15 to 20 bullets, police said. He voluntarily surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident, and authorities said they recovered a semi-automatic handgun at the scene.

The other three deceased victims have been identified as Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Tate Myre, 16. The alleged shooter has not been named.

Seven other people were injured in the shooting, including a 47-year-old teacher from the school, located about 45 minutes north of Detroit.

Oakland County Deputy Sheriff Michael McCabe said on Tuesday that police had yet to establish a motive. He also said his department was not aware of any warning signs that could have predicted the shooting. Local authorities and the FBI worked overnight to gather evidence at the school.
