Three students were killed and six injured in a shooting at Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan, on Tuesday, authorities said.
A teacher was among the injured.
The conditions of the injured were not immediately clear.
The suspected shooter, a 15-year-old male student, was taken into custody within five minutes.
A handgun has been confiscated, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said.
Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe reportedly said at a news conference Tuesday that the suspect fired a semi-automatic weapon, and the entire incident “lasted five minutes.”
Authorities said they believe he acted alone. The teen has not mentioned a motive.
There are reportedly about 1,500 students enrolled at the school 45 miles north of Detroit.
