Michigan High School Shooter Identified and Charged as an Adult, Posted Cryptic Message Hours Before Shooting

Ethan Crumbley has been identified as the 15-year-old who shot and killed four students at Oxford High School in Michigan. Seven others, including a teacher, were also injured in the shooting. Crumbley was charged as an adult Wednesday with terrorism causing death and four counts of first-degree murder. He also faces seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

His motive for the shooting remains unconfirmed by police, however, kids at the school say he was being bullied. Crumbley is believed to have used a gun his father purchased on Black Friday.

Hours before the shooting, the suspect made a post on Instagram that read: “Now I become death — destroyer of worlds — see you tomorrow Oxford.”

Authorities also said Crumbley recorded a video the night before the shooting in which he discussed killing students, according to the Associated Press.

Four days before the shooting, Crumbley made an Instagram post bragging about the gun.

‘Just got my new beauty today. SIG Sauer 9MM. Ask any questions I will answer,’ he wrote in a post last week on an Instagram account that has now been deleted. Other fake accounts were circulating online on Wednesday morning as Crumbley remained in police custody, refusing to cooperate with investigators.

The suspect took the lives of three students: Tate Myre, 16; Hanna St Julian, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17 and Justin Shilling, 15.

Crumbley will be moved from a juvenile facility to a county jail where he will be held without bail.
