2 min read

15-year-old Ethan Crumbley is in juvenile custody for the shooting at Oxford High School, Michigan, on Tuesday.

Four kids were killed; Tate Myre, 16, Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Justin Shilling, 17.

Crumbley, 15, has been charged with four counts of murder, terrorism, and other guns charges.

On Wednesday evening his booking photo was released by the Oakland County sheriff’s office.

Ethan Crumbley met with parents and teachers three hours before he gun downed four classmates in a rampage on Wednesday for a meeting to discuss his ‘behavior’.

At 10 am that morning, his mother and father Jennifer and James were called into Oxford High School for a meeting with teachers about Ethan’s behavior. It’s unclear what prompted the meeting, but it was the second time Ethan had been called in in two days.  On Monday, he met with teachers alone. 

Police say there was no record of the teenager being bullied – as other students have claimed – and prosecutors revealed at his arraignment that he had detailed in a journal found in his backpack how he wanted to shoot students at the school.  

Prosecutors are charging Crumbley as an adult so that he may be convicted and sentenced to life in prison. At a press conference on Wednesday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald has suggested she might also charge his parents, for not keeping the 9mm handgun that he used out of his reach. 

The teenager had boasted on Instagram about the gun – pretending it was his – days before the attack. 

Crumbley posted on Instagram four days before Tuesday's attack to show off his father's new Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, pretending it was his. 'Just got my new beauty today. SIG Sauer 9MM. Ask any questions I will answer,' he wrote in a post last week on an Instagram account that has now been deleted.

On Tuesday, he fired 30 rounds at the school – emptying two 15-round magazines. A third was found on school property. Crumbley had more live rounds in his pockets, according to the sheriff’s department. 

THE CHARGES 

X 1 COUNT OF TERRORISM CAUSING DEATH 

X 4 COUNTS OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER 

X 7 COUNTS OF ASSAULT WITH INTENT TO MURDER 

X 12 COUNTS OF POSSESSION OF A FIREARM IN COMMISSION OF A FELONY
