“The evidence I’ve seen shows he was very clearly trying to kill people,” Bouchard said, adding later in the interview that video of the shooting was chilling and shows “it’s clear he came out with the intent to kill people. He was shooting people at close range often times toward the head or chest.”

Oxford High School in Michigan was rocked by shooting, screaming, and an urgent message played over the school’s loudspeaker, all of which resulted in the deaths of four students.

As a result, terrified students erected barricades, dialed 911, and gathered anything they could find as a defense.

An investigation is underway to determine why a 15-year-old Michigan high school shooting suspect acted as he did. What we know thus far:

The motivation of the 15-year-old Michigan high school shooting suspect is being investigated by authorities. Here’s what we do know.

A sophomore went on an “absolutely cold-hearted, homicidal” rampage that left four pupils dead and seven others injured at the country’s bloodiest K-12 school shooting since 2018 and senior Aiden Page heard two rounds fired from inside a classroom.

Page told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he saw his instructor go inside the classroom and shut the door just like they had performed active shooter drills.

In case the gunman came in and we had to battle them, “We grabbed scissors and calculators,” he added, recalling how a bullet had punctured one of the tables they’d placed to block the entrance.

Mark Kluska, a student in a sign language class, heard a lockdown announcement over the school’s loudspeakers. With the help of a metal doorstop, his teacher closed the door and locked it.

When I heard shouting, I realized it was true,” Kluska said.

Later, Kluska and his classmates were reassured by someone outside the room who claimed to be a sheriff’s deputy, according to a video the freshmen shot.

The teacher responds, “We’re not willing to take that chance right now.”

The individual at the door was an enigma. First-floor window, Kluska added, was where the teacher signaled pupils to scramble into the snow. A police officer guided them to safety when they dashed across the courtyard to another area of the building.

More than a hundred people dialed 911 to report the incident. After arriving at the scene, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said deputies identified a 15-year-old suspect and arrested him without incident.

Three people were killed and eight others were injured in a shooting at a high school in Michigan, according to the undersheriff.

According to the authorities, four students were killed in the incident at the school some 40 miles north of Detroit: Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana, and Justin Shilling, each 17.

According to the sheriff’s office, Shilling passed away on Wednesday morning and the others perished on Tuesday. According to Bouchard, Myre was taken to the hospital by a deputy when he died in a patrol car on the way.

According to Bouchard, six pupils and a teacher were also shot.

On Tuesday night, Bouchard said a 14-year-old girl had had surgery and was on a ventilator. A 14-year-old child was also shot in the jaw and the head, while the instructor who was wounded was released from the hospital..

According to a CNN calculation, the shooting was the bloodiest at a US high school since eight students and two instructors were killed at Texas’ Santa Fe High School in May 2018. At least 48 shootings have taken place on K-12 campuses so far this year, with 32 of those occurring since August 1.

According to authorities, the suspect was being housed at the Oakland County Children’s Village, a juvenile correctional facility. David Coulter, the county executive, stated that he was on suicide watch and that he was being supervised every 15 minutes.

As soon as the shooting began, Aiden Page’s students pushed their desks against a door in his classroom, he claimed.

He said that when the gunfire began, students in his class pushed their desks into a door.

The sheriff claims video shows the assailant shooting individuals at close range.

Investigators believe the 9MM Sig Sauer SP2022 semiautomatic handgun used in the school massacre was acquired by the suspect’s father just four days before the attack, Bouchard said.

According to Bouchard, the gun had seven rounds of ammo in it and two 15-round magazines had been seized at the site. The sheriff, who had originally stated that at least a dozen bullets had been fired, claimed that investigators had collected more than 30 round casings.

According to him, “We believe he shot at least 30 times.”

After the incident, numerous students congregated in the parking lot of a nearby grocery shop.

After the incident, numerous students congregated in the parking lot of a nearby grocery shop, as their parents were walking away with their children.

According to CNN’s “New Day,” a school security camera showed an assailant “shooting victims at close range—oftentimes toward the head or chest” on Wednesday.

That is very frightening. Bouchard described it as “totally cold-hearted, deadly.”

According to the sheriff, the intruder “attempted to penetrate classroom doors.”

“I saw him shoot through the barred doors of many of the buildings last night…. Bouchard stated on Wednesday that “several of the barriers were damaged by gunfire.”

In praising his deputies and other local law enforcement agencies who reacted Tuesday, Bouchard said their collaboration and active shooter training proved to be essential.

Within three minutes of Bouchard’s arrival, deputies had the suspect in their custody after being summoned to the school at 12:52 p.m.

Deputies intercepted the guy as they made their way through the campus, Bouchard said. He then placed his hands up. The guy was taken into custody and the pistol was confiscated by the police.

With a loaded pistol remaining in the building, “I believe they saved lives,” Bouchard stated.

According to what we know, he left behind a few pieces of writing.’

According to Bouchard, they believe they have some papers that convey some of his ideas, but he stated he didn’t know whether or not the writings demonstrate intent at this point in the inquiry.

A search warrant was performed at the suspect’s residence, and a search of the school was also conducted, he claimed. In addition to the phone, authorities have taken other goods into custody.

When a minor’s parents have refused to provide permission for police to speak to their child, they have asked for a lawyer, Bouchard said.

Although we can’t gain any information about the perpetrator’s motivations from the suspect we’ve detained, I believe we’re on the verge of uncovering important details about how and why this incident occurred. According to Bouchard, “We’ve found some evidence that we’re beginning to sift through.”

According to him, authorities are also looking at images the suspect shared on social media of a target and the weapon he used in the attack.

In a text message, I’ll tell them how much I adore them.

Students and faculty resorted to active shooter exercise methods to defend themselves as hundreds of law enforcement officials descended on the campus on Tuesday.

McCabe said Tuesday that the school system has been “extremely successful” in preparing its staff and kids for active shooters.

According to the kid who filmed footage of his friends fleeing via a window, Moises Cortez, Kluska’s instructor, acted quickly when the lockdown was announced over the school’s loudspeakers.

In order to prevent anyone from kicking their way in, he locked the door and installed a metal doorstopper. Kluska confirmed this to CNN. As soon as he turned off the lights, he assured us that this was not a drill, and that he wanted us to be as safe as possible.

Students hid in their classrooms during the shooting at 00:55.

Many people were hurt in the hurry to flee the school, according to Bouchard. At a staging area close by, most patients were treated and then discharged.

According to Donna Sanders, her youngest granddaughter heard gunshots while changing classrooms. His story of escaping to a local grocery shop involved running through an exit door with others.

Sanders added that although his brother was locked inside, he was able to flee with the help of others.

As soon as the gunfire started, students may have saved their own lives.

In order to feel protected, Sanders’ oldest son went to a classroom with a teacher and other pupils, according to his mother, Vontysha Pittman. She said that he took cover beneath a desk and dialed his father to inform him of what was going on.

Despite the fact that they’re both at home, they’re both broken. In addition to our own families, “all the families at Oxford need our prayers,” Sanders stated.

An hour-long lockdown was put in place in Page’s classroom by a senior, according to CNN. He described the whole incident as “crazy” as he worried about his own survival.

First and foremost, I asked myself, ‘Is this really happening?'” Just in case, I’ll send a text message to my loved ones telling them how much I care if I ever pass away.’ After a little respite, I was able to gather my thoughts and rationalize the situation,” he remarked.

No one on campus or in the office is safe today.

If the evidence supports charging the suspect as an adult, prosecutors will make that decision.

After the incident, the office of prosecutor Karen McDonald has “begun the process” of gathering information on the inquiry. According to a statement released on Tuesday, “it is our intention to properly analyze it and pursue necessary charges.”

According to a statement on the district’s website, all schools in Oxford’s district will be closed the remainder of this week as a result of the incident.

Even as detectives scour the school for clues, local officials have promised to do everything they can in the following days to help restore the community’s lost trust.

A single member of the faculty or student body remains unscathed today. According to county executive Coulter, this tragedy has affected the whole Oxford town, Oakland County, and the United States as a whole. To say that “tragedies like these erode our sense of safety and tranquility in places like a school is an understatement.”
