The news of the shooting comes on the same day that Ethan Crumbley, a Michigan teen, pleaded guilty Monday to murder charges in connection with a Michigan school shooting last year in which four people were killed and seven others were injured. On November 1, Nikolas Cruz will be sentenced for the February 2018 shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which killed 17 people.

As the shooting in St. Louis unfolded, a prosecutor in Michigan addressed the nation’s gun violence crisis in the aftermath of Crumbley’s plea hearing on Monday.

“It isn’t just about collaborating with other departments. I’ve learned that gun violence can be avoided. And the fact that another school shooting has occurred does not surprise me – which is horrific,” said Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald.

“We need to keep the public informed and educated about how we can prevent gun violence.” It is preventable, and we should never accept that as something we have to live with.”

This is an ongoing story that will be updated.
