James and Jennifer Crumbley are sued for gifting their 15-year-old son with a gun, though he did not appear to be hiding his intentions



The parents of the teenager who killed four students at a high school in Oxford, near the US city of Detroit, Michigan, are in the hands of the police.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were charged with manslaughter on Friday.

Untraceable, they were actively wanted by the police and the FBI, said in a statement Michael Bouchard, the sheriff of Oakland County, Michigan.

"We intend to place them in detention quickly," he added.

The couple's lawyers have assured that contrary to what was reported, Ethan Crumbley's parents were not on the run.

"The Crumbleys left the evening of this tragic shooting for their own safety", they said, assuring that they were "in the process of returning to the region to be presented to a judge".

Still, according to CNN, the Crumbleys cut off their phones, took $ 4,000 from an ATM in the town of Rochester Hills, about 20 miles from Oxford, and their car was found in Detroit.

Detroit Police said they found the couple in the basement of the building where they tried to hide their vehicle.

James Crumbley had bought his son a Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistol the previous Friday, the day of the big “Black Friday” discounts, as a Christmas present.

Nice to meet you, Ethan posted pictures of the weapon on social media.

The next morning, Ethan Crumbley was summoned with his parents by the school administration, for drawings of a weapon and a bloody body accompanied by a smiling emoticon, as well as messages evoking death: "Help me. , my life is useless, the world is dead, blood everywhere, ”said the prosecutor.

"Ethan, don't do it"

Two hours after the meeting, he came out of the bathroom, weapon in hand, methodically progressing through the halls of the school, shooting at high school students and at the doors of the classrooms where the students had barricaded themselves.

He fired at least 30 bullets.

He would have aimed at random, without choosing previously identified victims.

On the news of a high school shooting, Jennifer Crumbley had sent a message to her son, writing "Ethan, do not do it".

The tragedy has created an atmosphere of psychosis in Michigan, where authorities are "inundated" with messages of threats against schools.

Detroit Metropolitan Police must have tweeted that any false threat allegation from "parents or children" was reprehensible.

We want to remind parents and students that regardless of the reason, making a false threat of terrorism is a felony and could result in 20 years imprisonment.

If you hear or see a threat, you can notify police through the OK2Say app or texting 652729. 8 /

Seventh city in the state, Ann Arbor preferred to close its 35 schools on Friday, time to reassure parents and staff.
