DETROIT — A shooter with a handgun at Oxford High School sent the township in a panic Tuesday, as law enforcement surrounded the school, helicopters swirled and worried parents took to social media to find out what was going on.

By early afternoon, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department was reporting it had taken a suspect — and a handgun — into custody just before 1 p.m., and there were “multiple victims,” between four and six, but no fatalities.

“At this time, it is still an active scene,” Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said in a brief statement on Twitter. “We have multiple patrol units and multiple EMS units on the scene along with SWAT and the aviation unit.”

However, the sheriff’s office said, 911 calls were still coming in.

Meanwhile, WILX-TV was livestreaming from the school, following the unfolding scene of authorities, and the snow-covered school grounds. Other media reported that some students were taken to McLaren hospital

No other information was released on the shooting suspect or the victims.
