Eva Deschamps / December 4, 2021
The parents of the teenager who opened fire Tuesday at a northern U.S. high school, killing four people, were charged Friday with manslaughter, Oakland County District Attorney Karen McDonald announced.
Fifteen-year-old Ethan Crumbley is the one who walked into the school and pulled the trigger, but other people contributed to this event and I intend to hold them accountable, she said in announcing the charges against James and Jennifer Crumbley.
James Crumbley had purchased the semi-automatic pistol used by his son a few days earlier.
Four students at Oxford High School, a small town in Michigan, died and six others were injured, along with a teacher.
The shooter was arrested at the scene. He has been charged with terrorist act and murder and faces life in prison as he is being prosecuted as an adult.
