Parents of children killed in Oxford school shooting demand increased transparency
OXFORD, Mich. (WILX) - Parents of Oxford High School shooting victims Tate Myre and Keegan Gregory are calling for transparency from the school district.
Represented by Attorney Ven Johnson, the parents say Oxford Community Schools (OCS) has “neglected to investigate the events” that led up to a deadly mass shooting on November 30, 2021.
School Board President Tom Donnelly announced on Tuesday that the district has declined for a second time an offer by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to conduct a third-party investigation into the mass shooting. The district said any investigation will be delayed until after criminal and civil lawsuits have concluded.
That process could take up to five years to complete.
Nessel said she’s not trying to assign blame, she just wants to find ways to make all schools safer in Michigan. She claimed the board appeared to be more focused on limiting liability rather than giving the community peace of mind.
“The families of the Oxford shooting victims need answers as to what went wrong,” Nessel tweeted. “I continue to push for transparency from the district’s Board of Education -- the families they serve are desperate for transparency and, as board members, they have an obligation to provide it.”
