Third Student Dies in Ohio Shooting

A high-school junior is the third student pronounced dead after a student gunman opened fire at Ohio’s Chardon High School yesterday. Demetrius Hewlin was a “happy young man who loved life,” his family said in a statement. The suspect, identified by witnesses as 17-year-old T.J. Lane although police have not yet named him, will likely face charges as an adult, Ohio’s attorney general said Tuesday. A motive remains unclear; witnesses say the boy shot several students from behind in the school’s cafeteria Monday morning.
