Deputies identified the three students who were killed in a school shooting on Tuesday at Oxford High School in Oakland County, Michigan. A 15-year-old male suspect killed Hana St. Juliana, 14, Tate Myre, 16, and Madisyn Baldwin, 17,  according to the local sheriff’s office in an update later Tuesday. Myre died in a patrol car while on the way to the hospital, Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard said.

Eight other people have survived their injuries, but the sheriff described some victims as being in dire condition:

  • a 15-year-old boy was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.
  • a 14-year-old boy was in “serious condition” with jaw and head gunshot wounds.
  • a 17-year-old girl was stable with a neck gunshot wound.
  • a 15-year-old boy was stable with a gunshot wound to the left leg.
  • a 17-year-old boy was stable with a gunshot wound to the hip.
  • a 47-year-old teacher has been discharged with a left shoulder gunshot wound, which Bouchard said appears to be a grazing wound.
  • a 14-year-old girl was in critical condition with chest and neck gunshot wounds. She was on a ventilator after surgery. “It’s looking very tough for this young girl,” Bouchard said.
  • a 17-year-old girl was in critical condition with a chest gunshot wound.

Other students sustained non-life threatening injuries while evacuating, Sheriff Bouchard said.

“She touched so many people,” Madisyn Baldwin’s grandmother said of her in a WDIV report. “She had so much patience. She was so kind.” Baldwin had been accepted into more than two dozen colleges.

The Oxford football team mourned Myre.

“Tate was a great young man with a bright future and beloved by all,” they wrote in a tweet. “You will be missed, Tate.”

The sheriff did not identify the 15-year-old boy who allegedly opened fire, saying that he has not been charged as an adult. He only described him as a sophomore at the school, and a resident of Oxford Village. The teen did not sustain injuries, the sheriff said. Deputies arrived at the scene, saw him as they were coming down the hall, and he put his hands up, Bouchard said.

The murder weapon is a 9mm Sig Sauer SP2022 handgun that the teenager’s father purchased on Friday, Bouchard said. With his parents present, the 15-year-old declined to speak to investigators, and they hired an attorney, the sheriff said. He did not say anything during his arrest, according to Bouchard.

Investigators executed a search warrant at his home, the sheriff said. They have seized a phone and are examining it. The 15-year-old had been shooting with weapon recently, posting pictures of it and a target on social media, Bouchard said. Asked by a reporter why the father purchased the gun on Friday, Bouchard reiterated that the family was not speaking to investigators.

The investigation is ongoing. From deputies:
