The man’s voice pleads, “Okay, okay, just open the door, and look into my eyes, brother.”

The school shooter was quickly apprehended after police received a flood of 911 calls.

His informal language was enough to convince the students that he could not be trusted.

“He said, ‘Brother.’ Red flag!” says a male student.

According to footage, the students then begin to jump out of one of the room’s first-floor windows and run through the snow at the main entrance of the high school, manned by a uniformed officer.

“Slow down. You’re fine,” the officer tells the panicked teen, as the 52-second clip shared on Snapchat, Tik Tok and Twitter ends.

After jumping from the first story window of the school, the students ran towards the main entrance, at which a police officer was stationed.

Officials said the alleged gunman, an unidentified 15-year-old attendant at the school, was caught five minutes after the school made a 911 call from the school at 12:51 a.m., five minutes after the flood.

“Deputies confronted him, they had weapons, they took him into custody,” Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said. He said the suspect’s motives were unknown.

Oxford, Michigan, a city of 22,000, is located between Detroit and Flint.
