The shooting killed four people. The parents of the teenager who opened fire on Tuesday in high school in Oxford, northern United States, have been charged with manslaughter.
Ethan Crumbley, 15, “is the one who walked into high school and pulled the trigger,” but “other people contributed to this and I intend to hold them to account” Oakland County Attorney Karen McDonald said when announcing the lawsuits against James and Jennifer Crumbley.
James Crumbley had bought the semi-automatic pistol used by his son a few days earlier. “Gun owners have a responsibility. When they fail to fulfill this responsibility, there are serious and criminal consequences… That is enough,” said Karen McDonald.
The young gunman indicted for “terrorist act”
Four high school students in Oxford, a small town in Michigan, died and six others were injured, along with a teacher.
The shooter was arrested at the scene. He was charged with “terrorist act” and “assassinations”, and faces life imprisonment because he is being prosecuted as if he were of legal age.
