The Oxford, Mich. school shooting lasted 9 minutes, the timeline shows

Oxford school shooter Ethan Crumbley spent nine minutes hunting for victims and emptying a gun into a high school hallway and bathroom, according to a timeline obtained by The Detroit News.

After Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, he continued walking through the school, firing his gun before officers spotted Crumbley in the building — just outside the bathroom — and took him into custody. and injured and killed the victims.

The timeline, which has not been officially released before, was made available this week through a media request by The Detroit News. It shows the Nov. 30, 2021, attack at Oxford High School lasted several minutes longer than authorities initially described after the incident. Four students – Hana St. Juliana, 14; Madisyn Baldwin, 17; Tate Mair, 16; and Justin Schilling, 17, were killed and seven others, including a teacher, were injured at the Michigan school that day.

Several families of the victims and survivors have publicly asked the school district, police, prosecutors and school board for a full accounting and timeline of the attack that occurred more than 15 months ago.

The release of the Oxford history timeline comes days after the February 13 mass shooting at Michigan State University, less than four weeks after the incident that left three students dead and several others injured. The accused, a 43-year-old Lansing man, shot himself and died within hours of the attack.
