Michigan vigil sees mass panic after Oxford School shooting as speakers urge crowd to 'stay calm'

THE crowd in a vigil for the victims of a high school shooting in Michigan were left in panic as a speaker urged them to "stay calm."

"Someone passed out. There is no threat, no concern," said Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter, informing the crowd that there had been a medical emergency.

"Believe me, if there was any concern, we would tell you it's time to go," added Coulter.

"We're all emotional, we're all on edge. Take a breath."

A student from Oxford high school then sang an Ave Maria as the crowd settled and ambulances arrived at the scene.

As Coulter began his address on Friday evening, the crowd suddenly began yelling and running.

It was unclear at first what was happening, and the crowd quickly went into a panic.

The vigil took place while the parents of alleged shooter Ethan Crumbley remain "fugitives," according to authorities.
