OXFORD, Mich. — The Oakland County Sheriff's Office has identified the three students killed in Tuesday afternoon's mass shooting at Oxford High School.

Late Tuesday, authorities said Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Tate Myre, 16, as the three students who lost their lives following a five-minute rampage at the Oakland County high school.

Sheriff Michael Bouchard said their families have been notified and each family has been assigned a deputy to remain as long as they need and "to provide the protection they deserve."

Deputies removed a 9mm Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistol from the 15-year-old student as he was placed in custody, Bouchard said.

Myre died in a patrol car as a deputy rushed him to a local hospital, Bouchard said in a 10 p.m. update on the investigation.

"One of our deputies, due to the severity of wounds, loaded up one of the children in his car and, sadly, that child died in the car," Bouchard said. "One of our employees who was in the 911 center as part of the team taking the emergency calls, had a relative killed. This touches us all personally, deeply and will for a long time.

 

"We will leave no stone unturned."

Myre, a junior and a running back on the football team, played on the varsity since his freshman year and was an honor student.

No. 42, at 6 feet tall, was honored with a regional football award by the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association in February. He aspired to attend Michigan State University, Grand Valley State University, Wayne State University or Texas A&M University, according to his player profile.

"Tate was a great young man with a bright future and beloved by all. You will be missed, Tate," his team posted in a tribute to him Tuesday.
