Police have identified the three students who died and eight other people who were injured after a shooting at Oxford High School.

OXFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJRT) - A fourth student has died following Tuesday's shooting at Oxford High School.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office reported that 17-year-old Justin Schilling died around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac.

The other three students who died on Tuesday are:

  • 14-year-old Hana St. Juliana.
  • 16-year-old Tate Myre, who died in the back of an Oakland County Sheriff's Office patrol car rushing him to an area hospital.
  • 17-year-old Madisyn Baldwin.

The seven other people injured in the shooting included seven students and one teacher. The sheriff's office has not released their names, but identified them as:

  • A 14-year-old girl in critical condition with gunshot wounds to her chest and neck. She was transferred on a ventilator to Hurley Medical Center in Flint after undergoing surgery.
  • A 17-year-old girl in critical condition at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital in Pontiac with a gunshot wound to her chest.
  • A 14-year-old boy in serious condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac with gunshot wounds to his jaw and hand.
  • A 17-year-old girl in stable condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital with a gunshot wound to her neck.
  • A 15-year-old boy in stable condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left leg.
  • A 17-year-old boy in stable condition at Ascension Providence Hospital in Rochester with a gunshot wound to his hip.
  • A 47-year-old woman treated and released from McLaren Lapeer Region hospital with a gunshot wound to her shoulder.

Police have a 15-year-old suspect in custody. The sheriff's office plans to meet with prosecutors on Wednesday to discuss the investigation and criminal charges.

The shooting was reported around 12:50 p.m. Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard said the 911 dispatch center received about 100 calls from the school, which has enrollment of 1,800 students.

The first police officers were dispatched at 12:52 p.m. and Bouchard said they had arrested the alleged shooter within two to three minutes after receiving the call.

"Deputies took a 9mm pistol – loaded and still had seven rounds of ammo," he said. "When they took it he was coming down the hall. They interrupted and saved seven more victims. I believe they saved lives by taking him down."

The suspect has been identified as a 15-year-old boy, who is a sophomore at Oxford High School. He was taken to Oakland County Children's Village, which is the county's juvenile detention facility.

Bouchard said the suspect's father purchased the gun last Friday, four days before the shooting. Investigators say he and his parents have hired an attorney and are not cooperating with police. 

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office says over 300 law enforcement officers from at least 25 agencies in Oakland, Genesee and Lapeer counties responded to the scene Tuesday.

The Grand Blanc Township Police Department and Lapeer Police Department both sent officers to assist at the scene.

In addition, nine fire departments and two ambulance services also sent units to the scene. The Salvation Army, Common Ground and Oakland County Community Mental Health also provided staff or volunteers to assist first responders and victims.
