A suspected shooter at Oxford High School is in custody following a shooting incident in which at least one student was shot and four people were injured on Tuesday (Nov. 30), according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.
Here’s a statement from Oxford Community Schools:
“This afternoon there was an active shooter at Oxford High School,” district officials write in a message sent out to parents. “Oakland County Sheriff’s Department has secured the scene. Oxford High School students and staff are systematically being evacuated to the Meijer Garden Center and may be picked up there. Any students with their own transportation have been allowed to leave. All other district schools are in lockdown for safety purposes and are in no danger.”
The statement added, “Students at middle and elementary schools may be picked up by their parents at any time. Busing transportation will be delayed at Oxford Middle School and elementary schools until the needs of the high school students have been met. We will continue to share information with you as we can.”
