Footage recorded by a student reportedly shows the scene inside a classroom at Oxford High School, with a person allegedly impersonating a sheriff and attempting to trick students to come out of the classroom.

The students heard the alleged officer say “bro,” jumped out of the window and ran to another entrance of the school.

“We have one suspected shooter in custody along with a handgun,” said the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, according to Local4. “We do not believe there are any other at this time. There are multiple victims (4-6). No confirmed fatal shooting victims at this time.”

Emergency vehicles were rushed to Oxford High shortly after the lockdown began.

A statement from the Oxford Independent School District said, “all other district schools are in lockdown for safety purposes,” according to Local4.

One victim was shot in the face and the student’s condition was not confirmed, according to Local 4.
