Based on a recent report published by Reuters, a student gunman opened fire in an Ohio high school cafeteria on Monday. The armed person killed one student and four other were wounded. A teacher chased the suspect outside of the building to prevent him from shooting other people. Police officers intervened and the gunman was eventually arrested.
Ohio parents have been through terrifying moments when they were informed that an armed student stepped into the local high school cafeteria and opened fire against boys in school. Unfortunately, some of the boys have been injured during the attack and a 16-year-old student named Daniel Parmertor, who was studying computer science at a nearby school, passed away while being cured at the MetroHealth System in Cleveland.
According to the declarations of the Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Daniel Parmertor was waiting for a bus in the school cafeteria when the gunman opened fire and the “unspeakable tragedy” took place. People who knew him stated that Danny was a very good kid who had all his life ahead of him. The family did not wish to speak with the press; they only asked reporters to respect their need for privacy.
Chardon Police Chief Tim McKenna also declared that two of the four victims were brought in critical condition at the MetroHealth System in Cleveland. Their condition remains unknown for the moment because the medical staff did not wish to provide information about their health state. The other two wounded students, a 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old girl are kept under medical observance at the Hillcrest Hospital in suburban Cleveland.
The report of the police officers shows that the subject was caught half an hour after the shooting took place. Local people helped police officers find the main suspect and arrest him. They told investigators that the boy was called T.J. Lane and his house was later on surrounded by both police and FBI.
The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence released a report showing that the Ohio shooting is the worst in U.S. high school in 11 months. Ohio hasn’t dealt with a similar situation since 2007.
