The parents of a 14-year-old Michigan boy accused of killing two people in a shooting at his school earlier this week have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, police said.
Allison Booth, principal of the Cooper High School in Lincoln Park, Michigan, confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Andrew Hall has been suspended from school, reports Fox 2 Now in Detroit.
Booth said officials are working with police to determine whether Hall is a danger to the community.
“Safety and security at Cooper High School is a priority,” Booth said. “We’ve taken a number of precautions to make sure we don’t have an incident here.”
Hall faces two counts of involuntary manslaughter, among other charges, according to Fox 2 Now.
On Monday, Hall is accused of firing a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun at the head of a 13-year-old boy from behind him during lockdown drills at Cooper High School. The bullet penetrated the victim’s head and killed him.
The next day, Hall allegedly shot and killed another 13-year-old student, Tyler Smith, inside an industrial equipment shop at the school. Hall is also charged with two counts of open murder and armed robbery in that incident.
Hall’s mother, Mary Hall, and father, Robert Hall, are each charged with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of felony firearms violations, and multiple firearm-related charges.
