Springhill Group Counselling-Students Undergo Counselling After Chardon Shooting

The teenager accused of killing 3 students in a shooting spree at a school cafeteria appeared in court as a prosecutor deemed him as ‘someone who is not well’.

Seventeen-year old TJ Lane has admitted possession of a knife and a .22-caliber pistol to Chardon High School and firing 10 shots at a group of students on Monday morning. David Joyce from the prosecution said that Lane seem to be unacquainted with the victims.

According to Joyce, Lane might be charged with 3 counts of aggravated murder among other offences.

One student who has seen the attack and became readily alert said that the suspect appeared to be targeting a group of students sitting together. The teenager suspect was arrested after the attack on Monday and faced a hearing in a juvenile court.

Lane has injured and killed at Chardon High School, with a student population of 1,100, in Cleveland, Ohio. The 3 casualties are all students which has left townspeople wondering what could have triggered the gunman to do the shooting.

While the community is still reeling from the incident and trying to cope, grief counselling are being offered to staff and students of the schools in the area.

His court appearance has done little to dispel the mystery surrounding his motives. Meanwhile, prosecutors seemed to rule out speculations that the suspect has snapped because of being bullied or that his actions are somehow connected with drug dealing.

Surprisingly, the incident has nothing to do with drugs or bullying as the victims are chosen at random. It might be because the suspect is simply ‘not well’.

Timothy Grendell, the attending judge has ordered the boy to be held for fifteen days while prosecutors are given 2 days to bring charges against Lane. It is already expected that the prosecution panel will ask that the suspect be tried as an adult and not as a juvenile.

Demetrius Hewlin, a student who was in critical condition has died on Tuesday in a hospital in Cleveland, following the police announcement that 17-year old Russell King Jr has also died.

Both Parmertor and King were students in the vocational school Auburn Career Center nearby and were just waiting for the bus when the shooting happened.

The police authorities have yet to say what they see as the motive of the unfortunate incident.

Lane is not attending school in Chardon High School but in the nearby Lake Academy, a school for students with behavioral or academic problems.
