Three people were killed and six were injured during a shooting at a Michigan High School on Tuesday, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday.

Michael McCabe, undersheriff with the sheriff's office, said the three deceased victims are all believed to be students at the suburban Detroit school. Of the six people injured, one was a teacher, McCabe said.

Calls for the shooting first came in at 12:51 p.m. The suspect, described as a 15-year-old student at the school, was taken into custody within five minutes of the calls and a semi-automatic handgun was recovered, McCabe said.

According to McCabe, the suspect "has already invoked his right to not speak" and is not telling authorities any information.

"It's a very tragic situation, obviously," said McCabe, who said more information on the victims would come at about 5 p.m. local time.

The condition of the injured victims is not known.

McCabe said authorities believe the suspect acted alone, but the investigation is ongoing and include a review of social media.

This is a developing story.
