Charging decision anticipated for Michigan shooter's parents

A 15-year-old sophomore is accused of shooting and killing four students and wounding seven others, including a teacher, at Oxford High School.

OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. — A prosecutor considering criminal charges against the parents of a boy accused of killing four students at a Michigan school says their actions went “far beyond negligence.” 

Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald says a gun “seems to have been just freely available” to Ethan Crumbley. 

McDonald says charges are still being considered against his parents. 

The 15-year-old Crumbley has been charged as an adult with two dozen crimes, including murder and terrorism for a shooting Tuesday at Oxford High School in Oakland County, Michigan. 

The prosecutor says there are others “who should be held accountable." Investigators say the semi-automatic gun was purchased by Crumbley’s father last week.
