He killed four young people aged 14 and 17 and injured seven other people. After the attack, the boy was arrested without resistance and was subsequently charged, among other things, with quadruple murder and terrorism. According to adult criminal law, the teenager should be tried. He faces life imprisonment.

Michigan rampage: Parents ignored numerous clues

According to the state of the investigation, there had already been several suspicious signs in the boy’s behavior. For example, the 15-year-old was invited to a conversation with his parents by the school administration because drawings with violent fantasies had been discovered on his desk. “The thoughts don’t stop. Help me, ”read next to a picture of a pistol. In addition, Crumbley had drawn a cartridge and a corpse, along with the message: “My life is useless”.

He later took out the pistol he had hidden in his backpack in the school toilet and opened fire. According to the police, the 15-year-old had recorded a video on his cell phone the evening before the crime, which announced the attack for the next day.

Charges brought against parents of Oxford gunman

“The idea of parents reading these words and knowing at the same time that their son had access to a deadly weapon that they gave him is outrageous and I think it’s criminal,” said District Attorney McDonald. She also accused the parents of not checking that the teenager had the gun with him.

According to the prosecutor, the charges against James and Jennifer Crumbley are intended to “hold those who contributed to this tragedy accountable and to send a message to gun owners that they have a responsibility.” (dil / afp)
