“My heart breaks for the students, teachers, staff, and families of Oxford High School,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement. “The death of multiple students and the shooting of many others, including a teacher, is horrific.”
“As Michiganders, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect each other from gun violence. No one should be afraid to go to school, work, a house of worship, or even their own home.”
Our deepest condolences are with the victims, their families, and those impacted by the senseless tragedy at this extremely difficult time.
