Third Student Dies; Suspected Chardon Shooter Appears In Court
The 17-year-old suspect in a deadly rampage at a northeast Ohio high school has appeared in juvenile court as the community grieves with relatives of the three students killed.
A prosecutor says suspect T.J. Lane admitted taking a .22-caliber pistol to Chardon High and firing 10 shots at a group of students sitting at a cafeteria table Monday.
A judge ordered Lane held for at least 15 days. The court hearing Tuesday offered few answers about what prompted the shootings.
A prosecutor described Lane as “someone who’s not well” and said the teen didn’t know the victims but chose them randomly.
A fourth student who was hurt remained hospitalized in serious condition late Tuesday. Police said an injured Chardon student was released from the hospital and was home with her family.
