The victims of the shooting that occurred on Tuesday have been identified as Tate Myre, 16, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and 14-year-old Hanna St Julian.

“It is with great grief that one of the victims of the tragic events at OHS today was one of our own, Tate Myre. Tate was on varsity since his freshman year and was an honour student. Tate was a great young man with a bright future and beloved by all,” the football team wrote on their Facebook page.

Seven other students, aged between 14 et 17, remained hospitalised with gunshot wounds, including a 14-year-old girl on ventilator after undergoing surgery. A teacher who received a graze wound to the shoulder was discharged from hospital.

Mr Bouchard said the gunshot wounds were so grievous that there was no time to wait for an ambulance. “This wound will never go away," il ajouta.

A 15-year-old student was taken into custody for opening fire at the school in Oxford Township, a community of about 22,000 people that is located roughly 48km north of Detroit.

On Tuesday evening, law enforcement seized several guns from the suspect’s family home on East Street near the school.

Threats of a shooting allegedly circulated on the high school campus prior to Tuesday’s fatal rampage.

Treshan said he had heard vague threats about plans for a shooting “for a long time now”.

President Joe Biden offered his sympathies to the victims’ families. “As we learn the full details, my heart goes out to the families enduring the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one. You’ve gotta know that that whole community has to be just in a state of shock right now (sic),” the president said.
