Ohio School Shooting
February 27, 2012 by staff
Ohio School Shooting, Sorrow and disbelief replaced the chaos of Monday morning’s school shooting in Chardon, Ohio, as residents and investigators tried to sort out what prompted a young man to open fire on a table of students in the school cafeteria, killing one and wounding four others.
“I just can’t believe it. I don’t think it’s real,” said student Danny Komertz, who witnessed the shooting. “And I just, it kills me that I saw someone hiding, and now that someone is now dead.”
The gunman, whom police said was a juvenile, opened fire in the cafeteria of Chardon High School just as the school day was getting started about 7:30 a.m., according to police. Witnesses said he walked up to a table of four students he may have known and began shooting.
Police said they arrested the suspect a short time later in Chardon Township, a community of about 5,000 people 30 miles east of Cleveland.
Police Chief Tim McKenna declined to identify the suspect, while school Superintendent Joseph Bergant said only that he was a student. But the the Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland cited student Nate Mueller, who was slightly wounded in the shooting, in identifying the suspect as student T.J. Lane.
The fatally wounded student was identified by the hospital that treated him as Daniel Parmertor.
“We are shocked by this senseless tragedy,” Parmertor’s family said in a statement released by MetroHealth Medical Center. “Danny was a bright young boy who had a bright future ahead of him. The family is torn by this loss.”
