Death Toll Rises To Three In Ohio School Shooting

February 28, 2012  | 

Two more victims of Monday's shooting at Chardon High School died Tuesday morning.

Russell King, Jr., 17, was pronounced brain dead at 12:42 a.m. Tuesday at Ohio's MetroHealth Medical Center. Demetrius Hewlin, a junior, has also died, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Daniel Parmertor, 16, was killed Monday morning, when T.J. Lane, 17, allegedly opened fire in the school cafeteria.

A teacher chased Lane off school grounds. He surrendered to bystanders about a half mile from the school.

Investigators haven't revealed Lane's motive. However, King had reportedly started dating Lane's ex-girlfriend, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Classmates described Lane as a outcast who'd been bullied, reports ABC News. In late December he posted a poem on his Facebook page that read: "He longed for only one thing, the world to bow at his feet," and ended ominously: "Die, all of you."

Geauga County Sheriff Daniel McClelland said responding deputies made a prompt entry to the school and located the victims. Deputies then created a security perimeter so the shooter couldn't re-enter the campus. Deputies also launched a K-9 search.
