Armed school resource officers have been in the headlines since the Feb. 14 massacre of 17 teens and educators at a Parkland, Florida, high school, where an on-duty resource officer did not confront the gunman.

In March, a police officer posted at a Maryland high school shot and killed a 17-year-old boy who had opened fire on two fellow students.

All schools in Dixon, a small city about 100 miles (160 km) west of Chicago, were placed on lockdown, but Langloss said police believe the suspect acted alone and that there was no further threat.
