A prosecutor has filed involuntary manslaughter charges against the parents of the Oxford High School shooting suspect in connection with the deaths of four students.

On Friday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald revealed charges against the parents of Ethan Crumbley, 15, who is suspected of murdering four classmates and injuring seven others in the hallways of Oxford High School on Tuesday afternoon.

Prosecutors have charged his mom and dad, James and Jennifer Crumbley, with four counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Ethan Crumbley is accused of firing dozens of rounds from a 9 mm Sig Sauer SP2022 pistol purchased by his father recently, killing four students and injuring six others, including a teacher.

Crumbley has been charged as an adult with one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder, and 12 counts of felony firearm possession.

McDonald stated that the teen’s access to the gun goes beyond carelessness. During a video statement Thursday night, McDonald said, “It’s just not enough to charge this shooter,” implying charges were likely to be brought against at least one of his parents.

Ethan Crumbley, a sophomore at the school, did meet with administrators on Monday and Tuesday about concerning his conduct, according to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard. The teen’s parents apparently attended the meeting on Tuesday.

During that conference, Ethan Crumbley is presumed to have had the pistol bought by his father with him.
