A football player, an artist, a bowler, and an athlete: these are the victims of the Oxford High School shooting
Tate Myre had played for the varsity football team since his freshman year.
Madisyn Baldwin was an aspiring artist, and had received full-ride scholarship offers from colleges.
Justin Shilling was co-captain of the bowling team, and worked at a local restaurant.
Hana St. Juliana made her high school basketball debut the night before.
These are the four victims of the shooting at Oxford High School Tuesday.
Seven others were injured in the attack: three remain hospitalized, including a 17-year-old girl in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest. Four others have been discharged.
The 15-year-old suspect is charged as an adult with 24 crimes, including murder and terrorism.
Here are the victims of the shooting:
Hana St. Juliana, 14
14-year-old Hana St. Juliana was the youngest victim. A freshman at Oxford, she played volleyball in the fall and had just made her high school basketball debut the night before the shooting.
During a press conference Wednesday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said Juliana was described by her dad as “one of the happiest and most joyful kids.”
We will never forget your kind heart, silly personality, and passion for the game. Since 6th grade camp you have stayed dedicated to Oxford Basketball, soaking in the game.— Oxford High School Women's Basketball (@OHSWBball) December 1, 2021
Last night was your high school debut.
This season we play for you Hana. 🙏
Tate Myre, 16
16-year-old Tate Myre was an honor roll student who had played for his varsity football team since his freshman year.
A Petition.org campaign started after the shooting calling for the school's football stadium to be renamed in Myre's honor. The page calls Myre a hero, claiming he attempted to disarm the attacker - a detail which authorities have not yet confirmed.
It is with great grief that one of the victims of the tragic event at OHS today was one of our own, Tate Myre. Tate was on varsity since his freshman year and was an honor student. Tate was a great young man with a bright future and beloved by all. You will be missed, Tate 💙💛 pic.twitter.com/AKJCH1UWBG— Oxford Football (@OxfordFootbalI) December 1, 2021
Madisyn Baldwin, 17
Senior Madisyn Baldwin was an aspiring artist who was looking forward to attending college in the fall. In online tributes, friends say she had been accepted to multiple schools, including some with a full-ride scholarship.
"This beautiful, smart, sweet loving girl was tragically taken from us all today leaving a huge hole in all of our hearts and lives," her grandmother, who she called "Gigi," wrote on a GoFundMe page.
Justin Shilling, 17
17-year-old Justin Shilling died Wednesday at the hospital. A co-captain of the bowling team, Shilling was a senior who also worked for Anita's Kitchen in Lake Orion.
In a statement Friday, Justin's family wrote,
"As the community we have loved and lived in reels from this tragedy we as a family have to mourn the loss of our son. Justin Charles who was so dear to our hearts was at the same time beloved of so many people in his school and his community. He was a grandson, a brother, a cousin, a classmate, and without hesitation, a friend. The loss of Justin leaves such a gaping hole in our family that we cannot conceive of life without him. Our hearts are broken and yet still go out to the other families suffering this very same loss at this very same moment and which is beyond imagination, nothing any family should have to endure.
Justin was a scholar, part of Oxford School Districts Baccalaureate program and a university scholarship awardee. He was a tireless worker with three jobs that he juggled along with his studies. He was lettered athlete and had bowled on the Oxford High School bowling team. His potential was boundless in life and yet in death he continues to give of himself as an organ donor.
We feel the world can’t have too much of Justin."
