The parents of the Michigan teen accused of opening fire on his high school earlier this week appeared dazed and a bit disheveled when they were arrested.
Jennifer and James Crumbley were found inside a commercial building about 50 miles away from their Oxford, Michigan, home early Saturday, after a tip from the building’s owner, who saw their SUV there, the Detroit Free Press reported.
The couple dodged authorities for hours after they were expected to turn themselves in.
They are charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with Tuesday’s attack, in which their 15-year-old son Ethan allegedly gunned down four students and injured seven others, including a teacher, with a weapon his parents purchased for him.
Their son was charged as an adult with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of terrorism causing death, and is being held without bail.
New video of the parents’ arrest aired by CNN shows them being led through a doorway into a hallway lined with armed US Marshals and other law enforcement. Both had their hands restrained behind their back.
Jennifer wearing a dark hoodie, kept her head down as she passed the camera. James wearing a blue and black flannel shirt, looked dazed as he shambled past.
Detroit Police Chief James White told reporters early Saturday the Crumbleys were “distressed” when they were found.
Both parents are expected to be arraigned at around 9 a.m. Saturday.
