A police officer confronted and injured an armed man at an IL high school Wednesday morning, a city official said, adding that no students or staff were injured in the incident. Shortly thereafter the suspect was taken into custody and transported for medical attention of non-life threatening injuries.

It was not clear whether the suspect was a student at the school, and officials did not immediately respond to calls for further comment.

Danny Langloss, Dixon City Manager tweeted "So grateful for the heroic actions of the Dixon police officer who stopped the armed gunman at Dixon high school". The school resource officer confronted the shooter who then ran out of the school.

Dixon High has been evacuated, and all Dixon schools are on lockdown while the investigation proceeds.

Reports say that multiple sources say Milby was recently expelled from the school. The gunman then fired several shots toward the officer, who shot back, wounding the suspect. Howell says the officer is being placed on paid administrative leave at this time.

The shooting incident began near the school's west gymnasium about 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to officials speaking at a late-morning news conference. The school resource officer pursued the subject. When officers went inside the high school, they said they saw students and teachers barricaded in their classrooms as they should have been. Rep Adam Kinzinger was briefed on the situation by Lee County Sheriff John Simonton.

He said that students and staff responded to the situation extremely well. Howell, Jr., said they also believe there is no further threats to staff or students, or community.
