Michigan once again earned the dubious distinction of making national headlines, this time for the deadly school shooting at Oxford High, in which 15-year-old suspect Ethan Crumbley killed at least four students.

Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald made headlines for her swift and severe punishment for the crimes, including charging Ethan Crumbley as an adult, and including a terrorism charge. She also took an unusual step in filing charges against Crumbley's parents, who bought the weapon used and ignored the school's concerns over their son's violent behavior.

Unsurprisingly, a number of Metro Times stories about the incident and its fallout were among the top 10 read this week. Here's what else our readers were interested in:
