Dixon Public Schools officials said high school students were being bused from the Illinois Army National Guard Armory near the school to the baseball fields. Parents can arrive there to pick up their child, and must have an ID to do so.

Dixon police could not comment or confirm if there was a shooting, all they could say is there is no public threat and no threat to students.
