Three students died Wednesday and two were seriously injured in a shooting inside a Michigan high school, local authorities said.
About 140 students were reportedly evacuated from Oxford High School in the town of Oxford shortly after 1 p.m. EST.
“We have three fatalities, two young men and one young woman,” St. Clair County Sheriff Mark Kimball told reporters during a press conference about 90 minutes later. “We have eight medical personnel on the scene.”
The identities of the victims, as well as those involved in the shooting, have not been released. Police believe the incident may have been in response to a domestic dispute between the suspected shooter and the girlfriend of one of the victims, Kimball said.
The names of the victims would not be released until their families had been notified, the sheriff said. He said two of the victims were students, and three were staff members.
Two critically injured students have been hospitalized, and five others, including three with life-threatening injuries, have been discharged from a local hospital, authorities said.
