The parents of a teenager accused of killing four students in a shooting at a High School in the US have been caught.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were captured at a building in Detroit.

Detroit Police Chief James E White said the couple “were aided in getting into the building” and that a person who helped them may also face charges.

He said the parents appeared to be hiding in the building when they were discovered, and appeared to be distressed and very upset when they were captured.

A prosecutor had filed charges against the two on Friday, accusing them of failing to intervene on the day of the shooting.

Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald said the parents committed egregious acts, from buying a gun on Black Friday and making it available to Ethan Crumbley, to resisting his removal from school when they were summoned a few hours before the shooting.
