AG Nessel Issues Statement on Denial of Third-Party Investigation Offer to Oxford

LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel released the following statement in response to Oxford Community Schools declining her offer to conduct a third-party review of last week's tragic shooting at Oxford High School:   

"I am extremely disappointed that the school district chose to decline my offer to devote the full resources of the Department of Attorney General to review the events leading up to and on November 30th. This tragedy demands a united effort from all of us who serve the Oxford community. 

"Despite this outcome, my department will continue to support the ongoing criminal investigation in Oakland County and looks forward to meeting with parents, students and teachers when they are ready to share their thoughts. To that end, we also remain committed to evaluating opportunities for our department to ensure that students in Oxford - and across Michigan - receive the protection they deserve and that guns are kept out of our schools."
