The accused Michigan high school shooter convinced school officials ahead of the deadly rampage that violent drawings he made were for a “video game,” a letter released Saturday by the school shows.

“On the morning of Nov. 30, a teacher observed concerning drawings and written statements that have been detailed in media reports, which the teacher reported to school counselors and the Dean of students. The student was immediately removed from the classroom and brought to the guidance counselor’s office where he claimed the drawing was part of a video game he was designing and informed counselors that he planned to pursue video game design as a career,” a letter sent to the Oxford High School community from Oxford Community Schools superintendent Tim Thorne on Saturday states.

The article goes on to state the following:

Accused shooter Ethan Crumbley, 15, and his parents met with school officials just hours before he allegedly opened fire on peers and school employees, killing four students and injuring seven other people.


“At no time did counselors believe the student might harm others based on his behavior, responses and demeanor, which appeared calm. In addition, despite media reports, whether or not the gun was in his backpack has not been confirmed by law enforcement to our knowledge nor by our investigation at this time,” the letter stated, which was published by WXYZ.

According to police, the teacher saw the words: “the thoughts won’t stop, help me” and a drawing of a bullet with the phrase “blood everywhere.”

Additionally, there was a sketch of a person shot twice and bleeding, a laughing emoji, along with the words “my life is useless” and “the world is dead.”

Crumbley was removed from class and the school called in his parents, insisting they take him out of school and enroll him in counseling or face CPS.

“When the parents were asked to take their son home for the day, they flatly refused and left without their son, apparently to return to work,” Thorne wrote in the letter.

“Given the fact that the child had no prior disciplinary infractions, the decision was made he would be returned to the classroom rather than sent home to an empty house,” the letter states.

“While we understand this decision has caused anger, confusion and prompted understandable questioning, the counselors made a judgment based on their professional training and clinical experience and did not have all the facts we now know,” Thorne continued. “Our counselors are deeply committed longstanding school members who have dedicated their lives to supporting students and addressing student mental health and behavioral issues.”

Ethan Crumble is charged with killing four students and injuring seven others. He is facing an array of charges, including one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder, and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, the report notes.

Crumble pleaded not guilty and is being held without bond.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were also arrested early Saturday and taken to the same facility as their son. Both parents are facing charges of involuntary manslaughter for buying the 9mm handgun the teen used in the attack and leaving it unsecured.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said it’s possible additional charges could be filed following the investigation.

  1. Not defending this kid but with crt and all the crazy people in our school system that teach propaganda. As a parent I would definitely look into what was going on in this school especially when they let him to go back to class.

  2. The counselors made a decision based on their professional training and clinical experience? A rudimentary drawing depicting “ blood everywhere “ and the “ Thoughts won’t stop” described as video game designers plan for his future given in a calm demeanor. And they accepted this utter nonsense rather than err on the side of caution? And no- he was NOT free of any history , students had raised concerns in the days before . This “ the thoughts won’t stop” ESPECIALLY should have raised the hair on their necks and brought immediate removal , and notification to the police.
    This is PRECISELY why the defund the police movement suggestions of social workers and psychologists stepping in , in place of police is madness.
    These butterflies are free ultra liberal nut bars who went into social work to save a world they can’t even recognize the sheer evil in , are going to cause blood baths and get slaughtered themselves in the path to a socialist regime and a national security force built with Antifa and BLM activists (in other word Brownshirts, and SS) .
    And partly by using school shootings , mass shootings to remove your right to defend against tyranny .

    • MartyAnn, you made some excellent points! My husband just commented to me that, think of how many students these same social workers/counselors, even teachers have removed from school with suspension or expulsion, kindergarten school children for pointing their index finger, and saying, “POW.” I know some very fine social workers, who perform admirably in specific situations; but the very thought of law enforcement being replaced by social workers is terrifying. These school administrators and staff should bear heavy responsibility for inappropriate or insufficient and timely action in this instance.

    • Excellent observations. Also, under the circumstances stated, wouldn’t it have been appropriate for the counselors to ask the parents if they have a gun in the house and whether it is secured properly? The school could confiscate the fun from the son, but the police would not have authority to take the gun from the patents’ home due to 2nd amendment rights. Laws would have to changed to effectively prevent this tragedy.

  3. What parent would buy a 15 year old a 9 mm gun? That should be the bigger question here. What was wrong with them and then try to escape?
