ABC7 reports that Dallas was the resource officer and the alleged gunman was "19-year-old Matt Milby", a former student. "His courageous actions saved a lot of lives". A press release from police says Milby then ran from the school and shot at an officer during a foot chase.

This was as per the training they had received on what to do when their school was faced with a shooter. "He didn't let this situation get escalated and it never got escalated so he did a wonderful job and I accommodate him for that, ' Schafer said". When officers arrived at the school, they found classrooms were barricaded with bookshelves and desks, as students and staff have been trained to do in active shooter situations.
