Rochester Hills, Michigan – Officers investigating the shooting of four high school students in Michigan found video on the phone of the accused gunman that showed him talking about killing students, a sheriff’s officer said on Wednesday. said.
The disclosure was preceded by the indictment of 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley, who was charged in Oakland County District Court with four counts of first-degree murder, one count of terrorism-death and other crimes.
Lieutenant Tim Willis of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said the videos were recorded the night before the shooting at Oxford High School on the night of November 30, about an hour north of Detroit.
Officers found a magazine with entries that mentioned shooting and killing of students.
Granthshala News did not review the videos or the magazines, and additional information about them was not immediately available.
Crumbley’s attorney Scott Kozak did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
During the trial, the juvenile, who is being tried as an adult, pleaded not guilty. When Judge Nancy Karniak asked if he understood his rights and the charges against him, he said “yes.”
Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said the shooting was “not merely an impulsive act.” She said investigators had uncovered a “mountain of evidence” showing that the attack was premeditated.
“Honestly I don’t have the words to describe what happened on the 30th,” prosecutor Mark Kest said during the impeachment.
Recalling a security video of the shooting, Kest said the teen walked into the bathroom with a backpack and emerged minutes later with a gun.
Apart from the four deaths, seven others, including a teacher, were seriously injured. Officials said the shooter opened fire with a 9mm Sig Sauer handgun that his father had recently purchased.
The suspect was released from confinement and will be transferred to the Oakland County Jail, where he will be separated from the other inmates.
His probable cause hearing is scheduled for 13 December 13.
