Accused Michigan high school shooter Ethan Crumbley was hit Wednesday with adult first-degree murder, terrorism and assault charges, prosecutors said.

Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said at a press conference Wednesday that her office is also weighing charges against the teen’s parents, who purchased the gun for the 15-year-old.

“When the shooting started yesterday, the students and teachers and staff in the school had to act quickly to save their own lives,” McDonald told reporters.

“Law enforcement and all of the first responders had to act quickly to prevent more lives from being lost,” she said. “Last night and this morning we had to act quickly to review the evidence that has already been gathered.”

“Going forward from today, the process becomes more methodical,” she added.
