Tuesday, Nov. 31, there was a shooting at Oxford High School, Oxford, MI. Oxford is

considered to be one of the safest towns in the state, and even in the nation, with a crime rate of three

per 1,000 people, meaning the chance of being a victim is just one in 323. However, this event

has shaken the reputation.

Three students died from the shooting, and eight others, seven students and a teacher, were shot. The

three victims who died were identified as Tate Myre, 16, Hana St. Juliana, 14, and Madisyn

Baldwin, 17. Of the eight gunshot victims, half are stable, while the four others are in critical


The suspect has not yet been named, as he is a minor and has not been charged as an adult. The

15-year-old is currently being held in Oakland County Children’s Village and is on suicide

watch, where he is being checked every 15 minutes.

Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter stated Tuesday, during a press conference, “Today,

three precious teenagers have been taken from us, and another seven students and a teacher were

wounded. But in a larger sense, there are no unwounded students or staff.”
