, in the shooting.During Friday's news conference, the top prosecutor in Oakland County said that a teacher had observed Ethan Crumbley searching ammunition on his cellphone and alerted school officials. The school tried to contact his mother but could not reach her.

McDonald told reporters that Jennifer Crumbley did not contact the school but instead texted her son:"Lol. I’m not mad at you. You have to learn not to get caught."On Tuesday, prior to the shooting, another teacher alerted school officials to a drawing found on Ethan Crumbley's desk. It contained a drawing of a gun pointing at the words “the thoughts won’t stop, help me," the prosecutor said.

There was also a drawing of a bullet with the words “blood everywhere” above it and a drawing of a person who appeared to have been shot twice and was bleeding. McDonald said the drawing of the person included a laughing emoji and the phrases “my life is useless” and “the world is dead."

After the teacher found the drawing, Ethan Crumbley was removed from class and his parents were asked to come to the school immediately. A counselor showed the parents the drawing but Ethan Crumbley had already altered it and scratched out some of the images and words, according to McDonald.

The parents were told they needed to get Ethan Crumbley into counseling within 48 hours, McDonald said.“James and Jennifer Crumbley resisted the idea of their son leaving the school at that time," she said."Instead, James and Jennifer Crumbley left the high school without their son. He was returned to the high school.”

The prosecutor said the teen should not have been allowed to return to the classroom.The shooting happened just before 1 p.m. McDonald said that after news broke that there was an active shooter at the high school, Jennifer Crumbley texted her son at 1:22 p.m.,"Ethan, don't do it."
