On November 30, 2021, a gunman opened fire on students at Oxford High School[7]. The school is near Detroit, in Michigan. The gunman killed three people and injuring six others. The suspected shooter Ethan Crumbley is a 15-year-old sophomore student, who was taken into custody.

At a news conference, Oakland County undersheriff Michael McCabe said the gunman “gave up without any problems."[8][9][10][11]
