Student Recounts Deadly Michigan School Shooting
Aiden Page, a senior at Oxford High School in the Detroit suburbs, recalled the panic after a student opened fire there.
“I was texting my family, texting friends, seeing if they were OK. I have a little sister who goes to my school, so I was texting to see if she was OK. My first texts were like, if — ‘I love you, if I die.’ I basically helped barricade. I helped cover windows. We’ve discussed this multiple times in our school. But to do — just in case. I honestly do not feel good about having to do that, so having to do that definitely made me safer and feel safer in the class.” “He was texting, and at first I thought he was joking. It didn’t seem like something that would be happening. Once I realized he wasn’t joking, it was, it was terrifying. I was shaking. I had tears in my eyes.” “At about 12:51, we had over a hundred 911 calls into our dispatch center of an active shooter at the Oxford High School. Deputies responded and within five minutes had the suspect in custody.” “I think this is every parent’s worst nightmare. I hope that we can all rise to the occasion and wrap our arms around the families, the affected children and school personnel.” “My heart goes out to the families enduring the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one.” “We’re hearing all kinds of rumors about warning signs. And we are not aware of any warnings. You know, because of social media, there’s a lot of stuff out there. I can’t confirm whether it’s true or not. Ultimately, we will get to the bottom of this.”
