Update 12/01/2021 4:41pm:
The identity of the person who killed four students and wounded seven others at Oxford High School in Michigan on Tuesday (November 30) has been revealed as 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley.
During an arraignment on Wednesday, Crumbley was charged with one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. According to authorities, he will be charged as an adult.
Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald stated, "Charging this person as an adult is necessary to achieve justice and protect the public. Any other option would put all of us at risk of this person because they could be released and still a threat."
McDonald added, "I am absolutely sure, after reviewing the evidence, that it isn’t even a close call -- it was absolutely premeditated. There is a mountain of digital evidence: video tape, social media -- all digital evidence possible, and we have reviewed it. Absolutely, we are confident that we can show it was premeditation."
The victims were revealed to be Hana St. Juliana, 14, Tate Myre, 16, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Justin Shilling, 17.

In an all too familar episode in the United States, a high school is now traumatized after a fellow student opened fire, killing three and wounding eight, including one teacher.
Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said the department is still investigating a possible motive for the shooting, but several reports state that students circulated information that a shooting was imminent, but McCabe warned against accepting that narrative until the investigation is carried out. While it's not immediately clear if the victims were targeted, but some students say the 15-year-old shooter was bullied.
Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said she planned to issue "appropriate charges quickly" and ensures the local community that she will "seek justice."
