A 17-year-old student is the fourth victim to die in a shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan as murder charges were announced against the teenage suspect.

The suspected shooter, Ethan Crumbley, 15, was charged Wednesday with four counts of first-degree murder, one count of terrorism causing death, seven counts of assault with intent to murder, and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

He’s being charged as an adult and will be arraigned later Wednesday, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said at a news conference.

McDonald said that Tuesday’s shooting at Oxford High School was “not just an impulsive act” and was planned.

“There is a mountain of digital evidence — videotape, social media, all digital evidence possible — and it absolutely, we are confident that we can show it was premeditation,” she told reporters.

The charges came shortly after authorities announced that the fourth victim had died — 17-year-old student Justin Shilling.

Shilling died around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.
