OXFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - 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 still are 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.
The prosecutor says there are others “who should be held accountable."
Investigators say the semi-automatic 9mm handgun was purchased by Crumbley’s father during a Black Friday sale last week.
Crumbley is accused of shooting 11 people in Oxford High School on Tuesday, killing four of students -- 14-year-old Hana St. Juliana, 16-year-old Tate Myre, 17-year-old Madison Baldwin and 17-year-old Justin Shilling.
Six other students and a teacher also were injured during Michigan's deadliest school shooting. The Oakland County Sheriff's Office has not released their names, but identified them as:
- A 14-year-old girl in critical condition with gunshot wounds to her chest and neck. She was transferred on a ventilator to Hurley Medical Center in Flint after undergoing surgery.
- A 17-year-old girl in critical condition at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital in Pontiac with a gunshot wound to her chest.
- A 14-year-old boy in serious condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac with gunshot wounds to his jaw and hand.
- A 17-year-old girl in stable condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital with a gunshot wound to her neck.
