Ohio School Shooting Leaves Three Dead; T.J. Lane in Custody [Updated]

by at . Comments

In a tragic and shocking turn of events, a school shooting in Chardon, Ohio, has left two people dead, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's office said.

Student Daniel Parmertor died on Monday. Russell King Jr., 17, was declared brain dead early Tuesday, according to the medical examiner's office today.

He was shot at Chardon High School on Monday. Three other students were wounded in the shooting, conducted by a teenager who has been arrested.

Authorities have yet to release the alleged shooter's name, but it has been widely reported and circulated in the aftermath of the double homicide.

Many students, some of whom said they were steps away from the suspect when the bullets flew, described the shooter as a withdrawn boy named T.J. Lane.

The suspect was scheduled to make an initial court appearance at 3:30 p.m. Authorities have not released the charges he may face in the Ohio shooting.

It was also unclear if the public or media would be allowed in the courtroom at all. Many juvenile hearings are closed, and Lane, if he is the suspect, is a minor.

Lawyer Bob Farinacci, speaking for Lane's family, said late Monday night that the boy, a 17-year-old high school sophomore, was "extremely remorseful."

"Very, very scared and extremely remorseful," he told CNN affiliate WKYC.

"He is a very confused young man right now," Farinacci added. "He's very confused. He is very upset. He's very distraught. This is a very scary circumstance."

"I don't think he could've possibly foreseen himself in the middle of [this]."

Thousands of people posted on Facebook and other sotes pledging to wear red - Chardon's school color - on Tuesday in support of the victims and survivors.

"RIP Danny. Such a beautiful life cut way too short. You will never be forgotten," one poster to Parmentor's memorial page. "My heart aches for your family."

The victims were students who attended Lake Academy Alternative School, a nearby vocational school, and were waiting for a bus to take them there.

Lane himself is a student at the school for at-risk children.

UPDATE: Demetrius Hewlin, 16, was declared dead on Tuesday morning after being shot by Lane. He became the third fatality of the unspeakable act.

Tragic and sad story! I pray for those involved. For the ones who passed, injured, and scarred. Also pray for the shooter. I know people are going to ask why pray for him but he is a scared young man.
