The Associated Press reports:
A prosecutor filed involuntary manslaughter charges Friday against the parents of a 15-year-old accused of killing four students and wounding seven other people at a Michigan High School. James and Jennifer Crumbley were charged with four counts each of involuntary manslaughter.
Authorities have said Ethan Crumbley opened fire shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday at Oxford High School, roughly 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Detroit. Seven students and a teacher were shot before Crumbley surrendered to sheriff’s deputies.
The New York Daily News reports:
The gun that 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley allegedly used to kill four classmates and wound several others was likely inside his backpack during a meeting about his classroom conduct, just hours before he opened fire inside his Michigan high school. Crumbley and his parents were called into Oxford High School Tuesday morning after two different teachers reported him for “concerning behavior.”
In an interview with Anderson Cooper on Thursday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said there was a “very strong possibility” the teen was carrying a semiautomatic handgun in his backpack during the face-to-face discussion with administrators. “Unfortunately he was allowed to go back to class,” she added. “We now know he had a weapon with him at that time, and that is simply tragic.”
