The Washington Post reports:

The fugitive parents of a 15-year-old boy accused of fatally shooting four classmates at a Michigan high school were taken into custody overnight, after they were found hiding in a commercial building in Detroit, police said in a news conference early Saturday.

Jennifer and James Crumbley were located after a tip from the local community, and were taken into custody unarmed and “without incident,” Detroit police chief James White said. The pair “did not break in” to the building, but “were aided,” White said, adding that police were investigating one other person that may have assisted the couple.

When asked about the pair’s emotional state as they were taken into custody, White said they were “very distressed” and that one of them left the scene with their head bowed.
