CHARDON, Ohio (KDKA) — Students at Chardon High School in Ohio are returning to class today for the first time since a deadly shooting earlier this week that claimed the lives of three students.
School administrators opened the school Thursday for a walk-through to prepare students ahead of their return. Also, faculty members went through counseling.
On Thursday, students and parents joined together for a march through the town to show solidarity following the Monday morning shooting.
As students head back to class today, visitation is set to begin today for 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor. His funeral will be held on Saturday.
The two other victims of the shooting, Demetrius Hewlin and Russell King, Jr., will be laid to rest next week.
Meanwhile, the suspect, 17-year-old T.J. Lane, has been charged with three counts of aggravated murder and other charges.
Prosecutors say they want Lane tried as an adult. If that happens, Lane could face a sentence of life in prison without parole.
