School administrators reported Crumbley, a sophomore at the school, for “behavior in the classroom that they found worrying about,” Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard said.

Crumbley’s parents were even brought to school on the morning of the shooting for a meeting about their son’s behavior, Bouchard added.

Police were not informed of the behavior and are not aware of any issues prior to the event.

Oakland County Sheriff’s Lt. Tim Willis said law enforcement raided Crumbley’s home and found “two separate videos recovered from Ethan’s cell phone.”

Speaking to Judge Nancy Carniak during Crumbley’s arraignment, Willis said the videos were “taken by him the night before the incident, in which he spoke of shooting and killing students the next day in Oxford Secondary School “.

Authorities also found Crumbley’s backpack and found a diary “detailing his desire to shoot the school, including the murder of students,” Willis said.

A glance at his social media accounts shows authorities he had access to a gun and trained with a Sig Sauer handgun, Willis said.

Grade 10 student Nathan Swanson, who went to college with Crumbley, told the Daily Beast that Crumbley was “really quiet, he would never talk to people.”

“He was wearing all black, I think he really enjoyed the hunt,” Swanson said.

Crumbley was charged as an adult with one count of terrorism, four counts of first degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to kill and 12 counts of possession of a firearm.

The teenager only spoke to say he understood the charges at the arraignment, where Carniak ordered him to be held without bail.

Crumbley, who has pleaded not guilty, was arraigned by video conference on Wednesday and was accompanied by his parents on the appeal.

He will be transferred from a juvenile detention center to the Oakland County Adult Jail, where he will be sequestered and placed under suicidal supervision.

Just days before the shooting, someone entered the school grounds and threw a decapitated deer’s head on school property.
