- A procedural hearing for a 15-year-old boy accused of shooting four students and injuring seven others at his Michigan high school.
- Ethan Crumbley is accused as an adult of murder, terrorism, and other counts in the November 30 shooting at Oxford High School.
A procedural hearing for a 15-year-old boy accused of opening fire at his Michigan high school, killing four students and wounding seven others, was scheduled for Monday.
Ethan Crumbley is accused as an adult of murder, terrorism, and other counts in the November 30 shooting at Oxford High School, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Detroit.
The purpose of Monday’s hearing is to get ready for the next one, which is set for December 20, when a judge will hear evidence and decide whether Crumbley should go to trial. If his lawyer asks for a mental competency evaluation, the case might be put on hold.
“The primary topics addressed in a case like Crumbley would most likely be: the exchange of discovery and also the timing of that exchange; whether the preliminary examination will continue on the scheduled date, whether it will be waived, or whether it will be adjourned to a fresh date; and bond,” an Oakland County prosecutor’s spokesman said.
Crumbley’s attorney did not respond to an email sent by the Associated Press on Friday.
Crumbley’s parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and arrested for failing to intervene on the day of the tragedy.
After a teacher discovered a drawing of a gun, a bullet, and a person who appeared to have been shot, along with messages stating, “My life is useless” and “The world is dead,” school officials met with Ethan Crumbley and his parents at the school the morning of the shooting.
According to the superintendent of the school district, the Crumbleys “flatly refused” to take their kid home.
According to prosecutors, James Crumbley also purchased the weapon used in the shooting just days before the shooting, and their son had full access to it.
