Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald reveals what happened in the days leading up to the deadly Oxford High School shooting. She released charges against the suspect’s parents on Friday afternoon.
James Crumbley and Jennifer Crumbley each face four manslaughter charges.
“Ownership of a gun is a right, and that right comes with great responsibility,” McDonald’s said.
Officials said the gun used in the November 30 attack was purchased by James Cranby four days before his son was.
The suspect’s mother posted on social media about the firearm, saying, “I tried his new Christmas gift on Mom and Son’s Day.”
The suspect also reportedly posted about the pistol, “I got his new beauty today.”
McDonald’s revealed the day before the shooting that the suspect was reportedly looking for ammunition on his cell phone in class – when the teacher noticed. According to the prosecutor, Jennifer was allegedly called and emailed about the incident, but did not respond.
McDonald’s said Jennifer later sent a text message to her son about the incident. You have to learn not to get caught. “
The day after the shooting on November 30, prosecutors say the suspect was found drawing disturbing notes in class.
The painting reportedly worried the teacher. McDonald’s said that the suspect pointed to the words “I can’t stop thinking, help me” and pulled a gun, and a picture of a bullet with the words “Blood everywhere”, a laughing emoji and “My life is useless.” I shot it twice near the word.
The prosecution said the suspect was called in to meet with his parents at school. McDonald’s said the suspect had already modified parts of the drawing at that time.
Parents were reportedly advised to receive counseling for their son within 48 hours.
It was after the meeting that the suspect returned to class. The prosecution said the parents could not ask the suspect if he had a gun and could not check his backpack.
“Of course, he shouldn’t have returned to the classroom,” McDonald said at a press conference.
The shooting was unfolded after a while, killing four and injuring seven. Tate Maia (16), Madishin Baldwin (17), Hana St. Juliana (14) and Justin Schilling (17) were killed in the shooting.
At around 1:22 pm that day, the prosecutor said Jennifer sent a text message to her son, “Ethan, don’t do it.”
About 10 minutes later, James reportedly called 911 and reported that his gun was gone from his home. According to McDonald’s, it was stored in an unlocked drawer in the bedroom.
“We need to do better in this country. We need to say it’s enough,” the prosecution said.
