ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (WLNS) — The probable cause hearing for 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley is set for this afternoon.

Crumbley allegedly shot and killed four students, as well as injuring seven other people at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, MI.

The teen is being charged with one count of terrorism, four counts of first-degree murder and 12 counts of firearm possession in the commission of a felony.

Authorities have recovered two videos from Crumbley’s cellphone in which he talked about shooting and killing students at the school.

Crumbley is not expected to be at the meeting.

Crumbley’s parents, James, and Jennifer Crumbley are accused of failing to intervene on the day of the tragedy. They are charged with involuntary manslaughter and have been arrested.

The morning of the shooting, school officials met with Ethan Crumbley and his parents at the school after a teacher found a drawing of a gun, a bullet, and a person who appeared to have been shot, along with messages stating, “My life is useless” and “The world is dead.”

The school district’s superintendent has said the Crumbleys “flatly refused” to take their son home.

The gun used in the shooting also was bought days before by James Crumbley and their son had full access to it, prosecutors said.
