PONTIAC, Mich. — A sheriff's office in Michigan says the parents of a teen accused of killing four students in a shooting at a high school have been caught while hiding in a Detroit commercial building that housed artwork.

Police say James and Jennifer Crumbley appeared to be “distressed” when they were taken into custody.

Officers were called to the location after a tip from a community member.

A prosecutor has charged the parents with involuntary manslaughter.

The prosecutor accused the couple of buying a gun on Black Friday and making it available to 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley.

The teen is accused of opening fire inside Oxford High School, killing four people and injuring seven others.
