(CNN) — Three people were killed in a shooting at a high school in Oxford, Oakland County, Michigan, and eight others were shot, according to county sheriff Michael McCabe. All of the deceased are believed to be students.

McCabe said that among the eight people who were shot, at least one is believed to be a teacher.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office received more than 100 911 calls related to this incident, McCabe said. The first 911 call came around 12:51 p.m. Tuesday, and the suspect was taken into custody five minutes after the first 911 call, McCabe said.

All the students were evacuated and relocated to a nearby store to reunite with their families.

What is known about the victims of the shooting

A 16-year-old male adolescent and two 14- and 17-year-old female adolescents are the fatal victims of the shooting. Meanwhile, eight other people were injured, according to the sheriff’s office.

Two of the eight injured are currently in surgery and the remaining six are in stable condition with multiple gunshot wounds, McCabe said.

The suspect in the shooting is a 15-year-old sophomore in high school, McCabe said.

In addition, he related that the agents of the sheriff’s office confronted him and detained him. The 15-year-old did not resist arrest, invoked his right not to testify and is not saying anything to law enforcement officers at this time, McCabe said.

Michigan high school shooting leaves several wounded 1:55

McCabe said authorities recovered several casings at the school and believe that between 15 and 20 shots were fired. A semi-automatic pistol was recovered at the scene.

Additional searches are currently underway at the high school to determine if there are more victims, McCabe said. He praised school officials overseeing an “orderly evacuation.”

Authorities believe the shooter at Oxford High School in Michigan acted alone and do not believe he planned the shooting with anyone else, McCabe said.

McCabe said this information is “pending further investigation” and said the high school students are being interviewed by police.

McCabe said that apart from the semiautomatic pistol recovered at the scene, there are no other weapons they are aware of. No shots were fired at the responding law enforcement officers and the shooting suspect was not injured. There is also no indication that the suspect was wearing a bulletproof vest, McCabe said.

McCabe said authorities are aware of how the suspect put the weapon in the school, but he declined to release these details to journalists.

An Oakland County Sheriff’s Office deputy is assigned full time to Oxford High School and that deputy “was one of those who helped stop him. [al sospechoso del tiroteo]”, said McCabe.

About 25 agencies and about 60 ambulances responded to the shooting at the school Tuesday, according to John Lyman, a public information officer for the Rochester Hills Fire Department.

Oxford High School is approximately 45 miles from Detroit.

Michigan shooting

Student tells how they set up a barricade to protect themselves

Aiden Page, a high school student, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday that the shooter was so close to his classroom that a bullet went through one of the desks that Page and other students used to block the door.

Page said they organized to protect themselves when he, other students and their teachers heard two shots.

“We heard two shots and after that my teacher ran into the classroom, locked it, barricaded it and then covered the windows and hid,” he said.

The class was locked up for an hour, Page said. During that time, some students armed themselves with what they could find: “We grabbed calculators, we grabbed scissors in case the attacker came in and we had to attack them,” he said. “Some were crying, others were trying to support others. Others were trying to come up with ideas just in case.”

Page said the whole experience was “crazy.”

“The first thing that crossed my mind was: ‘Is this really happening? I’m going to text my family to tell them that I love them just in case, in case I die.’ Then when everything calmed down for a second, I was able to catch my breath and rationalize things, “he said.

“It’s definitely going to be weird to come back, especially knowing that there were people injured and that a couple of students also died.”

Biden’s message after the Michigan shooting

President Joe Biden said his “heart goes out” for the families affected by the school shooting in Oxford, Michigan.

?I was informed after the tour, I learned of a shooting at a school in Michigan. As we learn all the details, my heart goes out to the families who endure the unimaginable pain of losing a loved one, ?Biden said at the beginning of his remarks in Minnesota.

Biden said the suspect ?surrendered and claimed his right not to incriminate himself and surrendered his pistol. That’s all we know about it. “

“They should know that the entire community has to be in shock right now,” added Biden.

The investigation

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is executing a search warrant at the suspect’s home.

McCabe reiterated that the suspect, who is currently in custody, does not cooperate with the police and said his parents hired a lawyer. He also said the suspect’s parents met with their son Tuesday afternoon after the shooting and told their son not to speak to police.

The motive for the shooting is not known at this time and authorities are still investigating. McCabe said his office is hearing “all kinds of rumors” about motives and warning signs, but said his office was not aware of them and cannot confirm their veracity.

The 15-year-old shooting suspect was in class Tuesday before the shooting, McCabe said.

CNN has reached out to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for comment.

Haiyang Chen, Rui Zhang, Xiaobin Chen, Guang Zeng, Libor Kobera, Sabina Abbrent, Ben Zhang, Weijie Chen, Guiying Xu, Jiyeon Oh, So-Huei Kang, Shanshan Chen, Changduk Yang, Jiri Brus, Jianhui Hou, Feng Gao, Yaowen Li, Yongfang Li. A guest-assisted molecular-organization approach for >17% efficiency organic solar cells using environmentally friendly solvents. Nature Energy, 2021; 6 (11): 1045 DOI: 10.1038/s41560-021-00923-5

Developments in organic solar cells are rapid, and the maximum energy efficiency achieved by solar cells produced in the laboratory is currently over 18%. The energy efficiency measures how large a fraction of the energy in sunlight is converted to useful energy in the solar cells. The efficiency limit is considered to be around 24% for organic solar cells.

One challenge is to manufacture organic solar cells that are sufficiently stable to function for ten years or more. Another challenge is that the highest energy is achieved in solar cells manufactured in solutions that contain toxic solvents, with a relatively low boiling point. The low boiling point causes problems during the manufacture, since the solution evaporates slightly too rapidly. The use of more eco-friendly solvents with higher boiling points leads immediately to a decrease in energy efficiency. This is a dilemma that researchers all over the world are working to solve.

These problems have now been solved in a joint project led by researchers at Linköping University in Sweden and Soochow University in China.

They have managed to manufacture a solar cell, using a solution with a high boiling point and without any toxic ingredients, whose energy efficiency is better than 17%. In addition, the green-solvent processed solar module with an area of 36 cm2 shows a power conversion efficiency over 14%. This is the highest efficiency reported to date for organic solar cell modules with an active area exceeding 20 cm2. Both of these breakthroughs are important for organic solar cell technology to make its commercial breakthrough at a large scale.

?Our results now open for the manufacture of organic solar cells at larger scales for outdoor use,? says postdoc Rui Zhang, who works with Professor Feng Gao in the Electronic and Photonic Materials Division, Linköping University.

The function of organic solar cells has improved step-by-step. When sunlight in the form of photons is absorbed in an organic semiconducting donor, an ?excited state? forms. Electrons jump to a higher energy level and create holes at the lower energy level, to which they are, however, still attracted. The electrons are not fully freed, and a photocurrent does not arise. The researchers conducted experiments in which they added various acceptor materials, which accept electrons and thus allow them to become free, giving rise to a photocurrent.

A couple of years ago, Chinese researchers developed a new acceptor material, named Y6, which can deliver high efficiency for organic solar cells.

What the work described in this joint publication has now achieved is to find a guest molecule, known as BTO, that ensures that Y6 molecules in the solar cell are packed in such a close and stable manner in the green solvents that the photocurrent can be generated efficiently. Adding BTO also enables larger areas of the solar cells to be manufactured with high efficiency.

?Our strategy leads to clear design rules for optimising the interaction between organic donors and acceptors in multicomponent blends, meeting the critical requirements for future development of organic photovoltaic technology, says Professor Yaowen Li, Soochow University.

CEO Elon MuskElon Reeve MuskMicrosoft CEO Nadella sells off nearly 0 million in shares of the company The dangers of anarchy in space Health risks of space tourism: Is it responsible to send humans to Mars? MORE warned SpaceX employees that if they don’t increase production of Raptor engines for his next-generation Starship rocket, the aerospace company faces a “genuine risk of bankruptcy.”

In an internal email first obtained by SpaceExplored, Musk said SpaceX faces bankruptcy if the company can’t “achieve a Starship flight rate of at least once every two weeks next year.”

“Unfortunately, the Raptor production crisis is much worse than it seemed a few weeks ago. As we have dug into the issues following exiting prior senior management, they have unfortunately turned out to be far more severe than was reported. There is no way to sugarcoat this,” Musk wrote in the email, which was sent the day after Thanksgiving. “Unless you have critical family matters or cannot physically return to Hawthorne, we will need all hands on deck to recover from what is, quite frankly, a disaster.”

The news comes just over a week after two senior level employees at SpaceX, including one who was taken off the development of the Raptor engine, resigned from the company, CNBC reported.

SpaceX’s Starship, which is being developed in Boca Chica, Texas, is the largest rocket in the world and is meant to be entirely reusable for multiple launches. Musk told the National Academy of Sciences recently that he would launch an initial test with the rocket and its booster, the Super Heavy, in January or February of next year.

Musk does not expect Starship to survive its first test flight early next year, but he is confident that SpaceX will succeed sometime in 2022.

Starship is then intended to take astronauts to the moon in 2023 as part of a nearly $3 billion contract between NASA and SpaceX.

Musk has shared plans to revolutionize space travel with Starship and similarly designed rockets. The rocket will one day take humans beyond the moon to other planets, the CEO has said, and will launch his next generation of Starlink satellites.

But development of the crucial Raptor engines, which are powered through the combustion of methane and oxygen, is lagging, according to SpaceExplored, and Musk’s emails suggest that the delay could have larger implications for his plans for Starship and SpaceX as a whole.

Elon Musk revealed SpaceX had to shift some of its Starlink satellites in orbit to avoid collision with space debris that forced NASA to postpone a spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS) earlier this morning.

The billionaire shared the news on Twitter, noting the ISS and docked Dragon capsule have micrometeorite shields to protect them against debris, whereas astronaut suits do not ?hence higher risk for spacewalk,? Musk shared in the tweet.

NASA announced the delay of the spacewalk at 1:01am ET, shortly after receiving a ‘debris notification’ for the orbital outpost.

Astronauts Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron were set to venture outside the giant orbiting laboratory at 7:10am ET for six and a half hours to replace a faulty radio communications antenna.

‘NASA received a debris notification for the space station,’ the space agency tweeted.

‘Due to the lack of opportunity to properly assess the risk it could pose to the astronauts, teams have decided to delay the Nov. 30 spacewalk until more information is available.’

It is not clear if the debris stems from the event two weeks ago, when Russia blew up one of its own decommissioned satellites in orbit that resulted in a field of 1,500 pieces of debris endangering the crew of the ISS.

However, Ross Gerber, founder of wealth management firm Gerber Kawasaki, said on Twitter that Russia is the ‘source’ of the debris that caused the Tuesday chaos.

The debris cloud made by Russia’s test forced the seven crew on the ISS to temporarily take shelter in their return ships.

NASA TV had planned to provide live coverage of the spacewalk’s ‘extravehicular activity,’ or EVA, operation.

The outing would have been the fifth spacewalk for Marshburn, 61, a medical doctor and former flight surgeon with two previous trips to orbit, and the first for Barron, 34, a US Navy submarine officer and nuclear engineer on her debut spaceflight for NASA.

The objective of the mission was to remove a faulty S-band radio communications antenna assembly, now more than 20 years old, and replace it with a new spare stowed outside the space station.

Astronauts Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron were set to venture outside the giant orbiting laboratory at 7:10am ET for six and a half hours to replace a faulty radio communications antenna

Marshburn and Barron would have made the changes while stationed at the end of a robotic arm, which was set to be  operated from inside the station by German astronaut Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency (ESA), who would have had help from NASA’s Raja Chari.

The four astronauts came to the ISS together aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

And they joined two Russian cosmonauts and a NASA astronaut already aboard the orbiting laboratory.

Russia blew up one of its own satellites on November 12 using a missile using what US analysts believe was an A-235 PL-19 Nudol 'satellite killer' missile. Cosmos 1408, a defunct spy satellite launched in 1982, was the destroyed target, which resulted in a field of 1,500 pieces of debris endangering the crew of the ISS

Although anything can happen while in space, the seven individuals were not prepared for what happened a few days later.

On November 12, Russia blew up one of its own satellites using what US analysts believe was an A-235 PL-19 Nudol ‘satellite killer’ missile.

The satellite was orbiting around 300 miles from Earth’s surface at the time, and created a debris field between 270 miles and 320 miles from the surface.

ISS orbits around 260 miles from the surface, though on Monday was slightly lower at 250 miles, meaning the debris passed over it by a distance of about 20 miles as their orbits crossed.

It is not clear if the debris from Tuesday stems from the event two weeks ago, when Russia blew up one of its own decommissioned satellites in orbit that resulted in a field of 1,500 pieces of debris endangering the crew of the ISS

Astronauts aboard the ISS were ordered by Houston Mission Control to get to safety inside the ship?s escape pods.

The residual debris cloud from the blasted satellite has dispersed since then, according to Dana Weigel, NASA deputy manager of the ISS program.

Although NASA has yet to fully quantify additional hazards posed by more than 1,700 larger fragments it is tracking around the station’s orbit, the seven percent higher risk to spacewalkers falls ‘well within’ fluctuations previously seen in ‘the natural environment,’ Weigel said.

Still, mission managers canceled several smaller maintenance tasks under consideration for Tuesday’s spacewalk, Weigel added.

WHAT IS SPACE JUNK? MORE THAN 170 MILLION PIECES OF DEAD SATELLITES, SPENT ROCKETS AND FLAKES OF PAINT POSE ‘THREAT’ TO SPACE INDUSTRY

There are an estimated 170 million pieces of so-called ‘space junk’ – left behind after missions that can be as big as spent rocket stages or as small as paint flakes – in orbit alongside some US$700 billion (£555bn) of space infrastructure.

But only 27,000 are tracked, and with the fragments able to travel at speeds above 16,777 mph (27,000kmh), even tiny pieces could seriously damage or destroy satellites.

However, traditional gripping methods don’t work in space, as suction cups do not function in a vacuum and temperatures are too cold for substances like tape and glue.

Grippers based around magnets are useless because most of the debris in orbit around Earth is not magnetic.

Around 500,000 pieces of human-made debris (artist’s impression) currently orbit our planet, made up of disused satellites, bits of spacecraft and spent rockets

Most proposed solutions, including debris harpoons, either require or cause forceful interaction with the debris, which could push those objects in unintended, unpredictable directions.

Scientists point to two events that have badly worsened the problem of space junk.

The first was in February 2009, when an Iridium telecoms satellite and Kosmos-2251, a Russian military satellite, accidentally collided.

The second was in January 2007, when China tested an anti-satellite weapon on an old Fengyun weather satellite.

Experts also pointed to two sites that have become worryingly cluttered.

One is low Earth orbit which is used by satnav satellites, the ISS, China’s manned missions and the Hubble telescope, among others.

The other is in geostationary orbit, and is used by communications, weather and surveillance satellites that must maintain a fixed position relative to Earth.

Jacquet, an assistant professor of geological sciences in the MU College of Arts and Science, believes this study offers a new way for scientists to investigate how different biological armored systems worked throughout the fossil record.

?By using micro-CT, we can virtually separate the individual components of the armor,? Jacquet said. ?That allows us to see how it protected these worms until, unfortunately, they went extinct during one of the major extinction events in the fossil record. We are able to manipulate the virtual models to determine how the individual armor pieces moved relative to each other, as well as determine the degree of overlap between them.?

At the time of their existence, these worms were likely living near coral reefs in shallow water on what is now land in Australia. The study identified these worms to have two overlapping armor systems ? one going down the length of the organism?s skeleton, and the other down both sides of the worm. While no direct correlations have been made yet between these worms and any modern species, Jacquet believes her study can deepen our understanding of convergent evolution.

?Convergent evolution is where different and unrelated groups adapt similar features,? Jacquet said. ?While this armor is a rather unique adaptation, and one that clearly does well for particular environments and protecting against particular predators, we do see other similar adaptations in a couple of unrelated animal groups, such as pangolins, pill bugs and millipedes.?

Jacquet said Lepidocoleus caliburnus is named after the famous sword ?Excalibur? from the Arthurian legend, and Lepidocoleus shurikenus is named for its resemblance to the outline of shuriken, the Japanese word for throwing stars. She said future plans for this work include using virtual models to study how these armor systems fared against different types of stressors, such as under a predator attack.
