Specifically, he is charged with one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of premeditated murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen D.

McDonald said Wednesday.

The seriousness of the crime, the facts leading up to the shooting that suggest “this is not just an impulsive act,” and the need to charge him as an adult to “achieve justice and protect the public” were the reasons she decided to charge him as an adult, she said.

According to McDonald, more charges could be filed soon, as the investigation continues to unfold and these are only the initial charges.

Evidence indicates that the shooting was planned “long before the incident,” he said, without elaborating.

McDonald said his office will consider pressing charges against the suspect’s parents.

Four confirmed victims

Police sirens replaced the sound of school bells Tuesday after a mass shooting at Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan, that left four students dead.

Three teens were reported dead Tuesday, but Wednesday morning another teen, who had been injured in the shooting, died.

Authorities have announced a 3 p.m. news conference for Wednesday. Earlier Wednesday, they met with the prosecutor’s office for a preliminary meeting.

Six more students and a teacher were wounded by gunfire and a 15-year-old suspect is in custody.
