Ethan Crumbley, 15, was charged on Wednesday for Tuesday's Oxford High School shooting in Oakland County, Michigan. The teen now faces first-degree murder and terrorism charges resulting from the shooting spree.
On Wednesday evening, the Oakland County Police Department released Crumbley's mugshot which is now circulating through social media and news outlets.
According to reports, Crumbley's parents were alerted about his behavior and brought to campus on Tuesday for a meeting about their son just before he carried out the shooting. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said on Wednesday, “We have since learned that the school did have contact with the student the day before and the day of the shooting for behaviors in the classroom that they felt was concerning.”
He added, “In fact, the parents were brought in the morning of the shooting and had a face-to-face meeting with the school. The content of that meeting of course is part of the investigation.”
During Crumbley's arraignment on Wednesday, Oakland County Sheriff’s Lt. Tim Willis said investigators found two videos of Crumbley expressing his desire to kill his schoolmates. Crumbley “talked about shooting and killing students the next day at Oxford High School,” Willis said. “Further, a journal was also recovered from Ethan’s backpack detailing his desire to shoot up the school to include murdering students.”
