Michigan authorities have located James and Jennifer Crumbley, who were charged in connection with this week’s deadly shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan, which was perpetrated by their son.
Their attorney had told police “she had made repeated attempts to reach them by phone and text without success,” the sheriff’s office said, according to ABC News.
“The action of fleeing and ignoring their attorney certainly adds weight to the charges. They cannot run from their part in this tragedy,” , Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said, the network reported.
However, they are now they are returning to town for their arraignment after detectives announced a nationwide manhunt to locate them.
“The Crumbleys left town on the night of the tragic shooting for their own safety. They are returning to the area to be arraigned,” their attorney said.
The couple were each charged Friday with four counts of involuntary manslaughter. Their son, 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley, allegedly used his father’s semi-automatic handgun in the Tuesday shooting that killed four and injured seven.
