Rockford Scanner™: Alleged School Shooter, Booked In The Winnebago County Jail


Winnebago County Jail confirms they have Matthew Milby in custody. He was booked in the Winnebago County Jail around 6:26 pm last night. He is currently held on no bond, hold for out of county.

There are 2 counts of Murder, unknown if this stems from the school shooting incident. Because he was charged with attempted murder in that case, and not actual murder.  So it is not yet clear if the murder charges are new charges, or stemming from the school shooting in Dixon earlier this year.

All we can confirm right now, is that Matthew Milby is currently booked inside the Winnebago County Jail. And is held on no bail, held for out of county.

Note: He might have been transferred here from another location. They do fly prision “Con Air” flights out of the Rockford Airport. He might be getting ready to be transferred to a prison. Details are minimal right now. Like we said, all we can confirm is he is currently in the Winnebago County Jail.

Matthew Milby is alleged to have committed a school shooting in Dixon, IL earlier this year.

Authorities allege that on May 16, Milby entered the foyer of the gym, where members of the school’s senior class were gathered to rehearse for their upcoming graduation ceremony. He allegedly fired toward gym teacher Andrew McKay, who ducked into the gymnasium and told the students to flee.Within seconds, Dixon police Officer Mark Dallas, who works as a resource officer at the high school, ran to the scene and began chasing Milby as he fled toward his car. Authorities alleged Milby fired at Dallas, who returned fire, striking Milby several times. Milby was arrested at the scene and no one else was injured. Matthew Milby is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated discharge at a school employee and aggravated discharge at a school building.


President Donald Trump offered praise to an Illinois school resource officer who stopped a school shooting while addressing the International Association of Chiefs of Police on Monday.

Dixon Public Schools police Officer Mark Dallas, who in May confronted an alleged gunman who targeted Dixon High School, was named the IACP’s “Officer of the Year” for his quick work in stopping the potential school shooting.

Dallas chased the suspect, Matthew Milby, after he allegedly fired shots near the school’s gymnasium, where seniors were practicing for graduation. The Chicago Tribune reports Milby allegedly entered the gym’s foyer and fired toward a teacher. Dallas arrived at the scene “within seconds” and began chasing Milby. The two eventually exchanged gunfire, and Milby was injured. Dallas was unharmed.

Trump honored Dallas when he addressed the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Orlando.

“Mark Dallas was on duty at Dixon High School in Illinois when he heard gunshots. Within, listen to this, three seconds he was at the scene right outside the auditorium where the entire senior class was gathered and was in a lot of trouble. The shooter fled and fired shots at him but officer Dallas chased him down before a single student was injured,” Trump said. “Officer Dallas’s son, Joshua, was one of the seniors inside of that auditorium. Afterwards, Joshua said, ‘I wasn’t scared for my life at all because I knew my dad would protect us.’ How good is that?”

In May, Joshua Dallas told ABC 7 he knew his dad would “protect us all.”

“I never once feared for my life,” he said. “But it did scare me that he was the one going after the shooter.”

In accepting the honor on Monday, Mark Dallas said: “My son said he wasn’t scared because dad was out there. I was dad to 182 other kids in that gymnasium.”
