James And Jennifer Crumbley Illegally Purchased Their Teenage Son A Firearm, Which He Used Days Later To Shoot And Kill Four Students And Injure Seven Others At Oxford High School In Michigan.

Washington, D.C., February 6, 2024 — A Michigan jury has found Jennifer Crumbley guilty on all four counts of involuntary manslaughter for enabling her son’s school shooting attack on Oxford High School. The mass shooting killed four students and injured seven others.

Kris Brown, president of Brady, said:

“A jury has found Jennifer Crumbley guilty of involuntary manslaughter. This ruling means that she is criminally responsible for facilitating the massacre at Oxford High School by failing to block her son’s access to the murder weapon – and safely store the firearm – despite indicators of imminent violence. Irresponsible behavior like Jennifer Crumbley exhibited is why 76% of school shooters under the age of 18 get their firearms from home. The consequences are irreparable, and the families of the children killed in this brutal attack will never again get to hold their children close and watch them grow.
“This verdict will not bring back the children killed or heal the wounds of those injured, but it does bring a shred of justice for the families who were so egregiously wronged. Today’s decision sends a powerful message to parents and other parties that they can be responsible for their actions that foreseeably contribute to gun violence even if they don’t pull the trigger.”

Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
