The parents of the teenager who opened fire at a high school in the northern United States on Tuesday, killing four, were charged with manslaughter on Friday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said.
In the process, the authorities clarified that the parents, who had to go to be presented to a judge, were actively sought. They stopped communicating with their lawyer, “which is an indicator of their intention to flee,” Sheriff Michael Bouchard told CNN. The FBI is mobilized. But an hour later, the couple’s lawyers assured that their clients had left their homes after the shooting for “their own safety” and that they would return for their arraignment.
LOL, I’m Not Angry
Ethan Crumbley, 15, “is the one who walked into high school and pulled the trigger” but “other people contributed to this event and I intend to hold them to account”, hammered the prosecutor.
Four days before the shooting, James and Jennifer Crumbley bought the Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistol used by their son and kept it in the drawer of a nightstand that was not locked. The day before the tragedy, a teacher caught the teenager researching ammunition on the Internet. Warned by the establishment, her mother said to her by SMS: “LOL, I’m not angry, you just have to learn not to get caught”.

On Thursday night, we contacted the Oakland County prosecutor to discuss this matter and to advise her that James and Jennifer Crumbley would be turning themselves in to be arraigned,” Smith and Lehman told The Detroit News at mid-afternoon Friday. “Instead of communicating with us, the prosecutor held a press conference to announce charges. The Crumbleys left town on the night of the tragic shooting for their own safety. They are returning to the area to be arraigned. They are not fleeing from law enforcement despite recent comments in media reports.
My Thoughts Don’t Want To Stop
On the morning of the shooting, the parents were summoned to high school as an emergency because their son had just drawn a pistol and a person shot dead, a sketch with the message “Blood everywhere.” My thoughts don’t want to stop. Help me.
The teachers told them that they were going to ask for a psychological assessment. The parents then refused to take their son home, did not search his backpack, and asked him if he had brought a weapon, the prosecutor said. A few hours later, a little afternoon, Ethan Crumbley came out of the bathroom, gun in hand. “Coldly and methodically” he fired thirty times, killing four high school students and injuring six others, as well as a teacher. He was notably charged with “assassinations” and “acts of terrorism.
