MICHIGAN — A sheriff's office in Michigan says the parents of a teen accused of killing four students in a shooting at a high school have been caught while hiding in a Detroit commercial building that housed artwork.

Police say James and Jennifer Crumbley appeared to be “distressed” when they were taken into custody.

Officers were called to the location after a tip from a community member. A prosecutor has charged the parents with four counts of involuntary manslaughter.

The prosecutor accused the couple of buying a gun on Black Friday and making it available to 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley.

The teen is accused of opening fire inside Oxford High School, killing four people and injuring seven others.

Both parents pleaded not guilty to the charges on Saturday morning.
