- Oxford, MI Three people were killed and six others were injured in a shooting Tuesday at Oxford High School in suburban Detroit, authorities said.

The suspected shooter, a 15-year-old sophomore, is in custody, Oakland County undersheriff Michael McCabe said at a press conference. A handgun was also located, he said.

The three people killed are all believed to be students, the undersheriff said. Their identities have not been released.

Authorities received a 911 call about an active shooter at the school just before 1 p.m., McCabe said. More than a hundred 911 calls came in to dispatch, he told reporters. The suspect was taken into custody at the school within five minutes of the first call.

"The suspect fired multiple shots, there are multiple victims," McCabe said. "He did not give us any resistance when he was taken into custody."

Among the six who were wounded, one is a teacher. They have all been taken to hospitals for various injuries, according to officials.

The suspect fired between 15 to 20 shots before he was taken into custody.
