Michigan School Shooting Suspect Parents Charged

 Parents Of Ethan Crumbley Charged With Involuntary Murder in School Shooting

The parents of Michigan high school shooting suspect have been charged in connection with the incident that left four students dead and seven others injured. They have each been charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Attorneys for the parents said the couple left town the night of the shooting but were returning to be arraigned. The Oakland County sheriff previously said there was an ongoing search for the parents and called them fugitives.

Earlier Friday, the county prosecutor, Karen McDonald, announced the charges against the couple, saying they failed to prevent the tragedy and allowed their son, a minor, to have access to the gun he used in the shooting.

The incident

Preliminary investigation revealed the suspect’s father James Crumbley bought a 9-millimeter Sig Sauer pistol at Acme Shooting Goods in Oxford on Nov., 26th. A store employee confirmed to police Ethan was with James when the gun was purchased, as Ethan’s Christmas present. A teacher reported that Ethan was using his phone to search for ammunition online. The school notified the teen’s parents via email and voicemail.

The parents resisted the idea of making Ethan leave school and failed to inspect his backpack and ask him if he had the gun with him. Ethan eventually returned to class. A moment after an active shooter report was raised, Jennifer sent a message to Ethan at 1:22 pm, reading, “Ethan. Don’t do it.” Almost 15 minutes later, James called 911 and reported a gun missing from his house, telling first responders he believed his son was the active shooter at the high school.

“I fully support Prosecutor McDonald’s issuance of charges against Jennifer and James Crumbley. Demanding accountability of a child’s parents under the circumstances presented is not just appropriate, it’s crucial “My heart continues to go out to the families who lost their child in this unfathomable tragedy. We must not let this pass without properly addressing gun violence and responsible gun ownership.”

Michigan’s attorney general, Dana Nessel said in a statement Friday
