Ethan Crumbley, 15, is accused of carrying out the mass shooting at Oxford High School in Oakland, Michigan, killing four and wounding seven. Many people seek answers while the Oakland Police Department investigates the shooting. They have found many social media postings they think were written by Crumbley in the wake of the incident. Authorities in Oakland have warned about potentially false information being disseminated online. One of the victims, identified as 16-year-old high school football player Tate Myre was reportedly posted on an Instagram account that is now believed to have belonged to Crumbley.
The claimed post has a message reading “Bye-bye” with a few emojis, his username, and a reference to the song “Dead Trollz” by YoungBoy Never Broke Again. This account’s username does not match any other screenshots claimed to be of Crumbely’s account. It’s unclear whether he used many identities for the same thing or if some photos were doctored.
Who is Tate Myre?
According to reports, the 16-year-old gave his life attempting to protect his friends from the gunman who opened fire at Oxford High School, and for this, he is being recognised as a hero. After being shot, Myre died in a police cruiser while cops rushed him to the hospital. Many students at Oxford High regarded Myre as a beloved figure. Since he was a freshman, he was a member of the varsity football team and reportedly had the skills to play at the collegiate level.
He was a dedicated and respected young man with a 3.9 GPA who sadly lost his life while attacking and tackling Ethan to disarm him. Since he bought his fellow students precious seconds to escape the gunman, there is an ongoing effort to rename the neighbouring Wildcat Stadium in his honour. Crumbley will be prosecuted as an adult on charges of one crime of terrorism resulting in death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to kill, and 12 counts of possession of a handgun during the commission of a felony.
Ethan Crumbley reportedly posted a picture from a police vehicle
The interior of a police vehicle is shown in another screenshot, allegedly from a post shared by Crumbley. He did not put up a fight when police arrived at Oxford High School, and he surrendered his pistol to them without incident. The tweeted image seems to be taken from behind the police vehicle and focuses on one officer concealed by the metal screen. There was a fuzzy shot, and the police officer was wearing a mask, so it seemed like the automobile was moving. There is no way to confirm the authenticity of the picture or its contents.
The sheriff of Oakland County, Michigan, Michael Bouchard, has issued a statement condemning the false information being spread online. A gun is included in yet another supposed post by Ethan Crumbley. The adolescent seemed to be boasting about having a gun in a screenshot allegedly taken from an account he used days before the incident.
