Next month’s trial for the suspect of the Dixon High School shooting last May will not move forward at this time. It’s after Matthew Milby is found unfit to stand trial by the court.

Our Rockford sister station, WTVO, reported Milby will be sent to a state facility and could still be tried. The examination showed he could be fit within one year.

The ruling was filed in Lee County, Illinois court on Friday.

Milby is accused of bringing a 9mm semi-automatic rifle to Dixon High School graduation practice and exchanging gunfire with the school resource officer on May 16, 2018.

Milby is charged with two counts of attempted murder, aggravated discharge of a weapon toward a peace officer, aggravated discharge of a gun at a school employee and aggravated discharge of a weapon at a school.

Milby pleaded not guilty to the charges on May 18, 2018.

There is a hearing for Milby scheduled for April 2, 2019.
