Clearly, they bought the gun for their child, who was possibly suffering from some mental difficulties. He and his mother talked about his Christmas present on social media. And they refused to take action when their son was found at school making some very disturbing drawings in the morning before the shooting.

And the sheriff talking about how the parents are now missing, his department's role in the ongoing investigation, and some communication difficulties with the prosecutors:

As one of the commenters to the videos said, it's about time that parents are being held accountable for their actions with their children.
