Some Dixon High School students watched shooting unfold

A police officer from IL, has prevented what could be a bloody attack on the high school Dixon, when faced with a former student who opened fire in the hallway, when high school students rehearsed for the upcoming prom nearby. The quick, fearless actions of Dixon Police Department school resource officer Mark Dallas stopped the gunman and saved many lives.

Officer Dallas rushed to the area and confronted the suspect, who fled on foot outside the school.

The city of Dixon is located about 100 miles from Chicago.

The suspect is a 19 year old former student. The officer returned fire, striking the suspect. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken into custody just west of the school.

A student who was a witness, Kylie Shaw, told Sauk Valley, "All of a sudden, we saw someone come in the new gym lobby doors, and we heard this pop! pop! pop! His courageous actions saved a lot of lives".

Authorities originally said Milby wasn't a student at the school. "His courageous actions saved a lot of lives".

According to the North American Police Work Dog Association, Dallas is a former Dixon PD K-9 handler.

"A lot of things went right today and many things could have gone wrong", Dixon Mayor Liandro Arellano Jr. told reporters at a news conference outside the school. Dallas is a 15 year veteran of the police department, serving the last five as the high school's resource officer.

"A tragedy was averted today in Dixon because a police officer put his life on the line to protect his fellow citizens", said Shawn Roselieb, executive director of the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council. People in the community gave thanks Wednesday night, relieved the situation didn't turn out much worse.

DIXON, Ill. (WIFR) - Dixon High School says students are being bused from The Armory to Al Morrison baseball field.

Dixon police believe the suspect acted alone and that there's no further threat to students or staff, SaukValley.com reported.

Dallas' actions were markedly different than those of a Florida school resource officer who was criticized for acting too slow in a campus shooting that left 17 dead.
