Student killed in high school shooting
Tuesday 28 February 2012
One student was killed and four were wounded when shots were fired in a school in Ohio.
A suspect was taken into custody yesterday at the 1,100-student Chardon High School, about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
The victims were rushed to area hospitals where a boy identified as Daniel Parmertor, 16, died at MetroHealth System in Cleveland.
Parmertor, a high school junior, went to a nearby vocational school where he studied computer science and was waiting in the cafeteria for a bus when the gunman opened fire.
Police have not formally identified the gunman, but students, parents of students and local media said his name was T.J. Lane. By early afternoon, police and FBI had surrounded a brown house on Wilder Road in a rural, wooded area of Chardon identified in public records as belonging to Thomas Lane.
Two of the four other victims were in critical condition at MetroHealth, according to Chardon Police Chief Tim McKenna. A 17-year-old boy was in serious condition and an 18-year-old girl was stable at Hillcrest Hospital in suburban Cleveland, a spokeswoman said.
Jeannette Roth, a mother, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that while children were eating breakfast in the cafeteria, a boy "stood up and started shooting, and then it was chaos".
The shooting is the worst at a US high school in 11 months and the worst in Ohio since late 2007, according to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
