Ohio High School Shooting Leaves One Dead, Four Wounded

Authorities in Ohio say one student has been killed and four others wounded in a shooting at a suburban Cleveland high school.

Two of the wounded are in critical condition, another is in serious condition.

A teenager was arrested shortly after the shooting at Chardon High School. Some students describe him as a bullied outcast, others disagree.

One student who witnessed the attack says it appears the suspect targeted a group of students sitting in the cafeteria.

The slain student, Daniel Parmertor, was an aspiring computer repairman who was waiting in the cafeteria for the bus for his daily 15-minute ride to a vocational school.

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is calling the shootings an “unspeakable tragedy.”

School officials say they’ll focus in the next few days on grief counseling for survivors and families and have canceled classes tomorrow.

A candlelight service is being planned for tomorrow evening.
