  • Authorities are searching for the parents of the Michigan high school shooting suspect.
  • The couple was charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter on Friday.
  • The sheriff told CNN they were to be arraigned this afternoon but stopped answering their attorney.

Authorities are looking for the parents of the Michigan high school shooting suspect, Sheriff Michael Bouchard told CNN.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were each charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter on Friday over their involvement in the shooting, which killed four students and left seven others injured.

They were set to be arraigned this afternoon, but the couple stopped responding to their attorney, who agreed to produce them for arrest if they were to be charged, Bouchard said.

“If they think they’re going to get away, they’re not,” he added.

Their son, a 15-year-old student at Oxford High School, is the sole suspect in the case and has been charged with murder and terrorism.

Prosecutors said in a press conference on Friday that his parents bought him the handgun thought to have been used in the shooting as a Christmas gift.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
