At least three people are dead after a shooting at a high school in Oxford, Michigan, police say.

At least six others were also injured, and a suspect is in custody. One of the dead is a teacher, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

“At 12:51pm, the first 9-1-1 call was placed about an active shooter at Oxford High School,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Facebook. “Dispatch received over 100 9-1-1 calls during the incident.”

Police say only one person is currently suspected in the shooting: a student at the school.
