Crumbley, who is facing terrorism, 谋杀, and other charges, recorded videos the night before the shooting in which he “talked about shooting and killing students the next day at Oxford High School,” Lt. Tim Willis said Wednesday.
The sophomore’s behavior was concerning enough that school officials called Crumbley’s parents to the school for a meeting on Tuesday just a few hours before the shooting, but Throne said that discipline wasn’t warranted.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the student that was apprehended, that he was called up into the office and all that kind of stuff. No discipline was warranted. There are no discipline records at the high school,” Throne said in a video message.
“是, this student did have contact with our front office, 是的, his parents were on campus November 30th. 再次, I will take any and all questions at a later time, but that’s not now. This is as much information as we can give you today.”
Crumbley met with school officials on Monday as well due to behavioral issues in the classroom, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said.
“We’re also hearing that there were rumors that someone had said something or knew something. None of that came to us until today,” Bouchard said on Tuesday. “So if there is information, that is the kind of thing we need to know and get looped in to.”
The 15-year-old’s father bought the 9mm Sig Sauer that was used in the attack on Black Friday, just four days before the shooting, 据警察.
Mark Keast, an assistant prosecuting attorney in Oakland County, said that Crumbley “methodically and deliberately walked down a hallway, aimed the firearm at students and fired it.”
