Michigan school shooting claims three lives

WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (KUNA) -- Three students were killed and at least six others wounded in a shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan State on Tuesday. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that President Joe Biden was told of the shooting by his National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan "in advance of a tour and remarks at Dakota County Technical College." "The traveling team will remain in close touch with the team back at the White House and provide regular updates to the President as new information surfaces," she added.
President Joe Biden, as he learned the full details of the tragedy, said his heart "goes out to the families that are enduring the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one." In remarks in Minnesota where he is touting the infrastructure bill, Biden said, "You've got to know that that whole community is just in a state of shock right now." Police sources identified the three slain as two girls, 14 and 17 years, and a 16-year-old boy.
The suspect has been identified as a 15-year-old student who is in custody. (end) si.gb
