Mark Dallas Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details On Hero Officer

Howell praised the officer for saving lives. "Thank god they didn't kill him". Officer Dallas returned fire striking Milby in the shoulder ending the pursuit.

Authorities originally said Milby wasn't a student at the school.

Throughout the rest of the school, students and teachers were barricading themselves by blocking classroom doorways with desks, chairs and other furniture - just as they had been trained to do.

Students describe a chaotic and panicked scene as they ran for safety. Thankfully, because the school district and the security officer on duty acted swiftly, there were no fatalities at Dixon High School this morning. Mark Dallas has now been placed on administrative leave as he was involved in the shooting. Multiple sources have identified the alleged shooter as Matt Milby, 19, reports Sauk Valley Media.

The school resource officer confronted the suspect, who then fled from the school with the officer in pursuit, Howell said.

Dixon High School was evacuated after the shooting, and family members were asked to pick students up at a local park where they were brought in buses. She said "I know that he's been very sad for a long time". This was as per the training they had received on what to do when their school was faced with a shooter. "It's the job of a school resource officer, and we commend him for keeping our students and staff safe".

Dixon Police officials credit the officer with saving lives. "Thank god he didn't kill anyone".

His brother, junior Skylar Scott, said he was in class when the teacher alerted the students and activated their active shooter response plan. She said she could not provide further details because of school privacy laws.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner identified the officer as Mark Dallas, writing on Twitter, "We should all be very thankful to school resource officer Mark Dallas for his bravery and quick action to immediately diffuse a unsafe situation".

The Dixon High School community came together Wednesday evening at Reagan Middle School, hoping to lean on each other for support, and make sense of the horrific incident.

"Things could have gone much worse", Dixon Mayor Liandro Arellano Jr. told a news conference.

Senior Tyler Adcock, 17, also has known Milby since middle school, "I never really talked to him in the last two years, but he never seemed malicious".
