Shooting Spree at High School
A 17-year-old teenager, T.J. Lane, is the suspect in a school shooting leading to the death of three students, ages of 16 and 17. The tragedy happened at the end of February 2012, at a high school in Chardon, Ohio.
While T.J. Lane appeared in juvenile court, he admitted taking a knife and a .22-calibre pistol, firing 10 shots. He shot a group of students sitting at a cafeteria table, and then targeting one boy outside the school who allegedly had started dating his ex-girlfriend. At the time of the shooting spree, there were at least 100 students in the cafeteria. The shooting ended when Frank Hall, the school's assistant football coach, chased Lane out of the building. Authorities used a K-9 unit to track down the suspect, who was found not far from the school. Even if at first the authorities believed there were more gunmen involved, FBI officials confirmed they believe that Lane was allegedly the only person involved in the attack.
According to his classmates, the boy was a “bullied outcast”, a loner, 'gothic'. Allegedly, Lane tweeted about bringing a gun to school, but nobody took this seriously. Sharing his inner rage on December 30, 2011 on his Facebook page, as a poem “In a quaint lonely town, sits a man with a frown. No job. No family. No crown. His luck had run out. lost and alone. The streets were his home. His thoughts would solely consist of “why do we exist?”[ ….]Now! Feel death, not just mocking you. Not just stalking you but inside of you. Wriggle and writhe. Feel smaller beneath my might. Seizure in the Pestilence that is my scythe. Die, all of you.”
The FBI and local authorities are now searching his home and the surrounding area, which is being treated as a crime scene. They are looking for any additional evidence that might lead some insight into his mind. He is expected to face at least three counts of aggravated murder when eventually charged.
