Teen appears in court after Ohio school shooting
Hewlin attended Chardon High. King and Parmertor were students at the Auburn Career Center, a vocational school, and were waiting in the Chardon High cafeteria for their daily bus when they were shot.
Fifteen-year-old Danny Komertz, who witnessed the shooting, said it appeared that the gunman singled out a group of students sitting together. He said Lane was known as an outcast who had apparently been bullied. But other students disputed that.
Farinacci told WKYC-TV that Lane “pretty much sticks to himself but does have some friends and has never been in trouble over anything that we know about.”
Lane did not attend Chardon High but waited there for the bus to Lake Academy, a school for students with academic or behavioral problems. Authorities would not say how and why he ended up at Lake Academy.
Student Nate Mueller said he was at the cafeteria table where the victims were shot, and a bullet grazed his ear. Mueller told The Plain Dealer that King — one of those killed — had recently started dating Lane’s ex-girlfriend.
Kala Day, 18, said she rode the morning school bus with Lane and knew the victims.
“He always sat by himself and, like, looked out the window. So I sat with him a few times, because I felt bad for the kid,” she said. “He didn’t talk. He just stared out the window.”
The shooting sent students screaming from the building in panic, and some of that chaos and fear was captured in 911 recordings released Tuesday.
“We just had a shooting at our school. We need to get out of here. Oh, my god,” one crying female caller told a dispatcher.
“Everyone’s running away,” the caller added.
Another caller, a male student, instantly identified the gunman as Thomas Lane, a student, and said he appeared to be shooting at random.
“What was his beef with these kids? Do we know?” the dispatcher asked.
