Michigan shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley's parents arrested in Detroit after manhunt

James and Jennifer Crumbley face involuntary manslaughter cargos in connection to Tuesday’s tragedy at Oxford High School for refusing to take their son out of school after staff said he exhibited warning signs of violence and needed counseling, según las autoridades.

Ethan Crumbley, 15, was arrested after he allegedly opened fire at the school, killing four students and wounding seven other people.

Following an hours-long search in Michigan on Friday that included U.S. Mariscales’ offers of $ 10,000 rewards each for their capture, law enforcement officers found the parents in Detroit, where they were reportedly hiding in an art studio after leaving their car in the building’s parking lot.

A business owner called 911 after seeing the suspects’ car and noticing a woman running away from it. Images of the car and the couple had been posted in the media.

A third person who may have assisted the couple by letting them inside the Detroit building where they were found is also being scrutinized by investigators and may face charges, White said. The Crumbleys didn’t break into the building, they were let inside by that person, the chief told reporters.

Investigators don’t know the relationship between the Crumbleys and the other person.

White praised his fellow law enforcement officers, and the tipster, after the arrests.

I could not be prouder,” White said. “Esta noche, otra vez, our community came through for us.

The Crumbleys left town on the night of the tragic shooting for their own safety. They are returning to the area to be arraigned. They are not fleeing from law enforcement despite recent comments in media reports,” attorneys Shannon Smith and Mariell Lehman previously told Fox News.

This isn’t indicative of turning yourself in, hiding in a warehouse,” White told reporters early Saturday.

We’re tired of this,” he added of school and other mass shootings, telling reporters the manhunt should takeas much manpower as it takesto give the families of the victimsthe closure that they need.
