A Michigan congressional delegation led a moment of silence in the Capitol on December 2 to honor the four students killed in a school shooting in Oxford Township, Michigan.

The moment of silence honored the memory of Hana St Juliana (14), Tate Myre (16), Madisyn Baldwin (17), and Justin Shilling (17), who were shot and killed in Oxford High School in suburban Detroit on November 30.

Representative Elissa Slotkin of Michigan spoke about the shooting, saying that “make no mistake, every single student, parent, friend, family member and community member in the greater area now has wounds you can’t see, the wounds that affect the head and the heart.”

The teenage suspect in the shooting, Ethan Crumbley, will be tried as an adult, and has been charged with one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, according to the Detroit Free Press.
