Michigan Teen Pleads Guilty to Murder and Terror Charges in Oxford High School Shooting

HeadlineOct 25, 2022

In Michigan, a teenage gunman pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of first-degree murder and terrorism for a mass shooting at Oxford High School in a Detroit suburb last November. Ethan Crumbley was just 15 years old at the time of the attack, which killed four students and injured six other people. Crumbley may be called to testify against his parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley, who face manslaughter charges for allegedly giving the gun used in the shooting to their son as an early Christmas present and for failing to intervene when their son showed clear signs of mental distress ahead of the massacre.
