Oxford High School shooting; suspect is 15-year-old student, 3 dead, 6 injured
A 15-year-old Oxford High School sophomore, armed with a semiautomatic handgun, is accused of shooting with a semiautomatic handgun at his school Tuesday afternoon, killing three students and injuring six others, including a teacher.
The incident unfolded in about 5 minutes and the suspect, who police said was not injured, is in police custody.
Authorities said it appears he was working alone, but some parents and students said before the shooting they had heard before Tuesday rumors that there would be one at the school.
Police did not identify a motive or indicate whether anyone was targeted.
Law enforcement surrounded the school, helicopters swirled and worried parents took to social media to find out what was going on.
