Police say mom bought shooting suspect's gun


Police say a teenager used a 9mm semi-automatic rifle in firing shots at Dixon High School before he was stopped by a school resource officer.

Illinois State Police said Thursday that 19-year-old Matthew Milby's mother bought the weapon in 2012 and that investigators were working to determine how he obtained it.

Milby is being held on a $2 million bond for aggravated discharge of a firearm charges in the Wednesday morning shooting at Dixon High School. Police say he was wounded by the officer and transferred Thursday from a hospital to jail.

No one else was injured.

Sauk Valley Media reports Milby was convicted in April of marijuana possession and fined $120.
