Parents of Michigan school shooting suspect plead not guilty to all charges during placement
The Detroit sheriff said a tip led them to the commercial building where they found the parents of the Michigan school shooting suspect overnight.
“There was a video of one of the fugitives entering the building,” Sheriff James White said early Saturday morning.
White said the Crumbleys – who were declared fugitives after failing to appear in court on charges of involuntary manslaughter – were unarmed and did not resist when officers found them.
“They appear to be hiding in the building,” the sheriff said. He added that they have been “assisted” in accessing the building and may have to pay fees as a result.
CNN reached out early Saturday morning with the parents’ attorney, Shannon Smith, who previously stated that the Crumbleys had left town for their own safety and intended to participate voluntarily. However, the Detroit police chief said there was no indication that the Crumbleys wanted to be found.
“This is not a sign that they’ve turned themselves in,” White said.
