Death Toll Rises To 3 In Ohio High School Shooting
CHARDON, Ohio (KDKA/AP) – Two more students have died as a result of injuries sustained during a Monday morning shooting at a high school in Ohio.
A Cleveland hospital said Demetrius Hewlin, who had been in critical condition, died Tuesday morning. The news came shortly after Police Chief Tim McKenna said 17-year-old Russell King Jr. had died.
The shooting happened around 7:30 a.m. in the cafeteria of a high school in Chardon, Ohio. The school is located about 30 minutes east of Cleveland in Geauga County.
A total of five students were shot in the incident.
Daniel Parmertor, 18, died at a Cleveland hospital Monday morning.
The conditions of the other three victims are not known at this time.
The shooting suspect has been identified as T.J. Lane. He was chased out of the building by a teacher and was later arrested.
People who knew Lane said he was quiet and never bothered anyone, but was influenced by a Gothic lifestyle.
Sources tell KDKA-TV the gunman may have been jealous that one of the victims was dating his ex-girlfriend who was homeschooled.
Both King and Parmertor were students at the Auburn Career Center, a vocational school, and were waiting in the Chardon High cafeteria for a bus for their daily 15-minute ride when they were shot.
The police chief would shed no light on a motive.
