DIXON, Ill. — An armed student who was shot at Dixon High School on Wednesday after exchanging gunfire with an officer has been charged.

Matthew Milby, 19, is now facing three felony counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, according to Illinois State Police.

He is being held on a $2 million bail and is being treated for his injuries.

More charges may be possible.

It all started about 8 a.m. Wednesday inside the school at 300 Lincoln Statue Drive. Authorities said Milby fired several rounds at an officer, who returned fire — shooting and wounding Milby. The officer was not injured, and Milby was taken into custody.

A woman who identified herself as Milby’s mother addressed reporters Wednesday and said her son had been “very sad” for a very long time.

The woman said her son was bullied and ostracized at school, and was beaten up in October. Officials initially described Milby as a former student, but the woman said Milby still attended Dixon High School, where he worked independently out of the principal’s office. He was slated to attend graduation rehearsal Wednesday, the woman said, but instead showed up with a gun.

The woman said she didn’t know where her son got a gun and that she does not keep guns in her home. Milby was shot twice, once in his shoulder, she said.
