Four students have been identified in a five-minute shooting at Oakland County High School in the U.S. state of Michigan. They are: Hannah St. Juliana (14), Justin Schilling (16), Tate Maire (16), Madison Baldwin (16).

The Auckland County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday (December 1) first confirmed the deaths of three students at Oxford High School on Tuesday afternoon. Another student was reported injured and died on Wednesday morning.

Sheriff Michael Bouchard said the families of the victims had already been notified. At present a deputy has been appointed to give them the protection they deserve. Authorities seized a 9mm Sig Sawer semi-automatic pistol from a 15-year-old accused student. He is currently in police custody.

Among the other injured were the jaws of a 14-year-old boy. He was shot in the head. He is currently in critical condition. An 18-year-old girl was shot in the neck but is in stable condition.

Earlier, Oakland County Under-Sheriff Mike McCabe told a news conference that three students had been killed in a five-minute gunfight with local time on Tuesday. A total of eight people, including a teacher, were injured. The 15-year-old suspect has already been taken into police custody in a completely unharmed condition.

McCabe added that the whole incident lasted only five minutes. The weapon was a semi-automatic handgun. Among the students killed in the attack were two women, aged 14 and 16, and a man aged 16. Two of the injured underwent surgery on Tuesday afternoon. At present their physical condition is not known.

He said the condition of the other six was stable. The injured are in three hospitals; McLaren Lapierre Region Community Medical Center, McLaren Oakland in Pontiac and St. Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac. The dead have not yet been identified, but a teacher at Oxford High is among the injured.

According to McCabe, about 15 to 20 shots were fired this time. The shooter was initially thought to be alone. The school had about 1,800 students at the time of the incident. The shootings took place at the south end of the school building.

He said deputies confronted the attacker, he had a weapon and deputies took him into custody. We don’t know if they (students) were the target. When we go further in this investigation we will go to the bottom of it.

In McCabe’s words, we know how the suspect took the gun inside, but I don’t mean that right now. The suspect has already claimed his right not to speak; She wants an attorney. The suspect is being held at the Children’s Village in Pontiac.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer attended a luncheon with McCabe with tears in her eyes as she told reporters it was the worst nightmare for any parent. My heart goes out to the families. This is an unimaginable tragedy. We can wrap up the arms around the family.
