Ohio School Shooting: Students’ March Back To Site Of Deadly School Shooting, Students at Ohio’s Chardon High School prepared to head back to class Friday for the first time since a gunman walked into the school’s cafeteria and killed three teenagers.
Two other students were hospitalized and another was grazed by gunfire Monday morning.
The person who authorities say is responsible, 17-year-old T.J. Lane, was charged Thursday afternoon with three counts of aggravated murder, two of attempted aggravated murder and one of felonious assault, the latter related to an individual who was “nicked in the ear” by a bullet, according to Geauga County Prosecuting Attorney David Joyce.
Some students were with their parents in the school, situated in a community of about 5,100 people some 30 miles east of Cleveland, on Thursday and counseling has been made available at various locales since the shooting.

“I watched families walk through the school holding hands, I watched people helping each other come back into the school,” said Geauga County Sheriff Dan McClelland of the scene inside the school Thursday. “It was an incredible spirit of Chardon. I’ll never forget that. This is why we live here.”
Friday marks the first full school day since the incident, a return that administrators and staff touted as key to helping people through the healing process.
School superintendent Joseph Bergant said that staff spent two days working on the transition, expressing confidence that they’ll be ready to provide comfort and support to those still trying to make sense of this week’s carnage.
