El sospechoso será acusado de adulto., McDonald dijo.
“Hay delitos que la legislatura dijo que son tan graves, que a una persona que los cometa se le puede cobrar automáticamente como adulto. First Degree Murder is the most serious of all those crimes. Segundo, there are facts leading up to the shooting that suggests this was not just an impulsive act,” McDonald dijo, who noted those facts “are not appropriate for discussion” at this time.
McDonald added that the “the only thing I can do as the prosecutor is ensure that I will do everything I can to prosecute this case and pursue justice for these victims.”
“But also to speak out and say that we need better gun laws,” ella dijo.
“If the incident yesterday, with four children being murdered and multiple kids being injured, is not enough to revisit our gun laws, No se que es. I’m a parent, there are parents here, there are parents listening, we need to make sure and want to know that when we send our kids to school, they’re safe. And responsible gun ownership is imperative. Es fundamental,” ella añadió.
McDonald was also questioned if there were writings that the suspect left behind.
“There is a mountain of evidence and I can’t comment,” McDonald responded.
The sophomore at Oxford High School was quickly apprehended by police on Tuesday after he allegedly opened fire in the school at about 12:50 pm.
Four students died due to the shooting. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard identified three of the students on Tuesday as 16-year-old Tate Myre, 14-year-old Hana St. Juliana, and 17-year-old Madisyn Baldwin.
The fourth student died on Wednesday morning and was identified as 15-year-old Justin Shilling. McDonald clarified at the press conference that Shilling was 15, no 17 as previously reported.
Six other students and a teacher were also injured, some seriously.
The suspect used a used a 9mm Sig Sauer, según la policía, which the boy’s father bought on Black Friday, just four days before the shooting. A motive has not been announced.
The suspect has declined to speak with authorities following his arrest and his parents have hired an attorney.
“There is no conversation that’s going on and no cooperation at that level,” Bouchard said Tuesday.
