OXFORD High School officials “could face criminal charges” after Ethan Crumbley allegedly opened fire on the campus, killing four last week.
In a recent interview,Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said “anything is possible” in regards to school officials facing charges in the aftermath of the shooting.
“I don’t want to jump to any conclusions because we don’t have that information at this point,” Nessel told journalist Brian Entin.
“But that’s a big part of the investigation because people want to make sure that these questions are answered.”
The conversation comes after the rare decision by Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald to charge Ethan’s parents.
James and Jennifer Crumbley were charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter days after the shooting.
A preliminary investigation found that James purchased the weapon used in the shooting four days before it happened.
Ethan would boast about the gun on his social media, calling it his “new beauty,” leading many to speculate that his parents bought the gun for him.
The school district’s superintendent asked for a third-party probe into the shooting over the weekend. Nessel said her department was the “perfect agency” to investigate the shooting.
“Our attorneys and special agents are uniquely qualified to perform an investigation of this magnitude and are prepared to perform an extensive investigation,” she said.
Nessel told the Detroit Free Press that she and McDonald have been in contact with each other all week long.
Nessel said that McDonald “has made it pretty clear that a comprehensive investigation of the school needs to be done.”
