Michigan teen charged with murder, terrorism in Oxford High School shooting



A 15-year-old boy was charged Wednesday with murder, terrorism and other charges for a shooting that killed four students and wounded others at Michigan’s Oxford High School.

The charges against Ethan Crumbley were announced Wednesday, hours after authorities reported the death of a fourth teen from a school in southeast Michigan. Crumbley was charged as an adult with one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of assault with intent to kill.

Prosecutor Karen McDonald did not disclose a possible motive for Tuesday’s shooting at Oxford High School, located in a community of about 22,000 people about 30 miles (48 km) north of Detroit. However, she said prosecutors were “confident” that they could show the crime was premeditated.

“There is a mountain of digital evidence. Videotape, social media, all possible digital evidence,” she said.

Deputies rushed to the school around lunchtime and apprehended the suspect in the hallway within minutes. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said late Tuesday at a news conference.

The boy’s father on Friday purchased the 9mm Sig Sauer gun used in the shooting, Bouchard said. Mr. Bouchard said he did not know why the man bought the semi-automatic pistol his son posted pictures of and practiced shooting.

The four students who died have been identified as 16-year-old Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Justin Shilling, 17, died on Wednesday.

Bouchard said Myre died in a patrol car when a deputy tried to take him to the emergency room. Michigan teen charged with murder, terrorism in Oxford High School shooting
