It is believed his father purchased the gun that was used in the attack.
Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said they have yet to uncover a motive behind the shooting.
He stated: "It’s a very tragic situation with ‘a lot of upset parents."
"You never want to prepare for something like this, but you have to, and the school district has done a wonderful job preparing."
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said, "I think this is every parent's worst nightmare."
She stressed that school shootings in America are a "uniquely American problem that we need to address."
"My heart goes out to the families. This is an unimaginable tragedy.
"I hope we can all rise to the occasion and wrap our arms around the families, the affected children and school personnel, and this community," Whitmer added.
