Prosecutors are seeking charges against the parents of a teen accused of gunning down his classmates at Oxford High School earlier this week, according to court records filed Friday.

Online records for 52-3 District Court in Rochester Hills show four counts of involuntary manslaughter are being sought against both James and Jennifer Crumbley.

Authorities have said their son, 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley, brought a gun to school on Tuesday and methodically fired at fleeing students. Four were killed and seven others injured in the rampage.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard previously said Crumbley’s father had purchased the 9mm Sig Sauer SP 2022 gun used in the shooting just days earlier. He has also said Crumbley and his parents met with school administrators the day before and day of the shooting to talk about the teen’s behavior.

Ethan Crumbley was charged Wednesday as an adult with terrorism and multiple counts of first-degree murder, assault with intent to murder and gun crimes and could face up to life in prison.

The high school sophomore is accused of killing four students — Hana St. Juliana, 14; Tate Myre, 16; Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Justin Shilling, 17 — and injuring seven others during the mass shooting.
