3 Students Shot Dead, 8 Wounded at MI School; 15-Year-Old Boy Arrested, Won't Speak to Police

A 15-year-old boy opened fire in a Michigan high school yesterday with a semi-automatic pistol his father had purchased days earlier, killing three fellow students and wounding eight other people before he was arrested, the Reuters website reports today (December 1, 2021).

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told a news briefing hours after the rampage at Oxford High School that investigators were at a loss to explain what might have precipitated "an unspeakable and unforgivable" act of violence. 

The suspect, whose name was withheld because he is a minor, was disarmed and taken into custody by sheriff's deputies minutes after the shooting began, has declined to speak with investigators after his parents retained a lawyer and denied authorities permission to interview their son, Bouchard said.
