A SHOOTING at Oxford High School on Monday left four students dead and six injured after 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley allegedly opened fire on his classmates.
His parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley may face charges alongside their son who is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of terrorism, along with other charges.
Who is Jennifer Crumbley?
Ethan Crumbley’s mother, Jennifer Crumbley, advocated for gun use prior to the school shooting at Oxford High School.
In November 2016, Jennifer Crumbley wrote a detailed letter on her blog to former President Donald Trump, in what appears to be praise for his beliefs and her reasons for voting for him.
“As a female and a realtor, thank you for allowing my right to bear arms. Allowing me to be protected if I show a home to someone with bad intentions. Thank you for respecting that Amendment.”
In her letter, Jennifer Crumbley adds the education system is failing her son and says she can’t afford a tutor.
The letter, written four years before her son became the alleged shooter at Oxford High School said, “I can’t afford a Tutor, in fact, I sacrifice car insurance to make sure my son gets a good education and hopefully succeeds in life.”
Who is James Crumbley?
The Oakland County sheriff said investigators discovered the gun used in the Oxford High School shooting was purchased by Ethan Crumbley’s father.
James Crumbley bought the 9mm semi-automatic handgun on Black Friday that was allegedly used to kill four students and injure five students and a teacher.
Police confirmed James Crumbley purchased three fifteen-round magazines for the pistol, but two had so far been recovered.
A magazine is a chamber that holds the cartridges so they can be fed automatically into the gun. The magazine is essentially a storage device for ammunition.
It isn’t clear where James Crumbley purchased the semi-automatic weapon, but the owner of Action Impact Gun Range, Bill Kucyk, said the gun isn’t manufactured or made widely available anymore.
Will James and Jennifer Crumbley face charges?
Oakland County prosecutor, Karen McDonald, has said she isn’t ruling out pressing charges against Ethan Crumbley’s parents.
She told Fox2 News both James and Jennifer Crumbley have been “difficult” and Ethan Crumbley should not have had access to his father’s gun.
Although it isn’t clear how Ethan Crumbley got hold of his father’s gun, McDonald said, “We know owning a gun means securing it properly locked up and keeping ammunition separate and not allowing access to other individuals especially minors.”
McDonald said people should be held accountable when a child gets hold of their handgun and added, “We will be making a decision swiftly.”
Ethan Crumbley is being charged as an adult in the shooting that killed Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, Tate Myre, 16, and Justin Shilling, 17.
