Parents of Michigan High School Shooting Suspect Found

  • James and Jennifer Crumbley are charged with involuntary manslaughter in the Oxford High School shooting.
  • After they failed to appear in court Friday, authorities labeled them fugitives and began a search.
  • Local media outlets reported the Crumbleys were arrested early Saturday morning.

James and Jennifer Crumbley, parents of the sole suspect in the Oxford High School shooting suspect, were arrested in Detroit early Saturday morning, according to multiple local media reports.

The couple was charged Friday morning with four counts of involuntary manslaughter and were set to be arraigned Friday afternoon. When police arrived at their home, they were gone.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office declared the couple fugitives and the US Marshals announced it had joined the search, with the agency’s Detroit Fugitive Apprehension working to locate the Crumbleys.

The Detroit Free Press reported the couple was found after a citizen spotted their car and alerted authorities.

Their 15-year-old son, Ethan Crumbley, was charged Wednesday with four counts of first-degree murder and a terrorism-related charge in relation to the shooting, which left four students dead and several others injured.
