(WXYZ) — A fourth teenager has died after a shooting at Oxford High School on Tuesday afternoon.


According to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, 17-year-old Justin Shilling passed away from his injuries around 10 a.m.
Tate Myre, 16, Hana St. Juliana, 14, and Madisyn Baldwin, 17, were also killed when officials say a 15-year-old sophomore opened fire with a 9mm pistol late in the noon hour in the south end of the school.

Seven other people, including one teacher, were injured in the shooting.

"It’s chilling. It’s absolutely cold-hearted, murderous. Our forensic team was working all night. So far, I believe they’ve recovered over 30 shell casings. We believe he fired over 30 shots," said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.

The 15-year-old suspect has been identified as Ethan Crumbley.

On Wednesday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald announced charges against the suspect.

He is charged with

  • 4 counts of first-degree murder
  • 7 counts of assault with intent to murder
  • 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony
  • 1 count of terrorism causing death

Police said the suspect's father purchased the gun that was used in the shooting four days ago. They found seven rounds in the 9mm pistol when they took him into custody.

“As they were coming down the hall, they saw him, he put his hands up, they took his gun and took him into custody," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said during an evening press conference.
