Third Student Dies In Chardon High School Shooting
Monday’s shooting at Chardon High School in Ohio has claimed yet another life.
Officials say Russell King, Jr., 17, died of his injuries this afternoon. Earlier this morning (though his death was reported last night) Demetrius Hewlin succumbed to the injuries he sustained in Monday’s shooting. Daniel Permertor, 16, was the first victim to die following Monday’s shooting.
All of the victims were students of Chardon High School and were seated at a table in the cafeteria where suspect T.J. Lane, 17, allegedly opened fire on a small group of teenagers Monday morning.
Lane did not attend Chardon High School. His motive for the shooting is being investigated.
Chardon High School has canceled classes until Friday, out of respect for the victims of the shooting and their families. Numerous vigils and prayer services for the victiims have been arranged in Ohio.
