OXFORD, MI: This afternoon, we reported about a mass shooting at Oxford High School in the rural community of Oxford, MI, about 40 miles north of Detroit.
Three students were killed, and 6 have been hospitalized, including one teacher.
A horrific video circulating on Twitter shows students locked down in a classroom after a 15-year-old sophomore student opened fire on fellow students inside of Oxford High School.
Outside the classroom door, a male voice can be heard telling the students it’s safe to come out.
“Sheriff’s office—it’s safe to come out!” a male voice from outside of the classroom shouts to the students who have barricaded themselves inside.
“Yeah, he says it’s safe to come out!” one of the kids inside the classroom can be heard saying.
“We’re not willing to take that risk right now,” a male student inside of the classroom shouts back to the unidentified male in the hallway.
“I can’t hear you!” the male outside of the door shouts.
“We’re not taking that risk right now,” the student responded.
The person outside of the door attempts to lure them to the door, “Ok, well, come to the door and look at my badge, bro!”
A trained law enforcement officer would likely not respond to a room filled with traumatized students in such a cavalier manner, referring to them as “bro!”
“He said, bro! Red flag!” one of the boys quips, as the students race for the windows in the classroom.
The students can be seen climbing through the windows and running across the open courtyard to another part of the school, where an actual Oakland County Sheriff deputy greets them.

These kids were so smart to respond the way they did. If they opened the door and the shooter was waiting for them, this tragedy could have been much worse.
