One Dead, Four Injured In School Shooting
CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — The police chief in a city outside Cleveland says one student has died in a shooting at a high school.
Chardon Police Chief Timothy McKenna says one student died Monday. He says a gunman is in custody but hasn’t been charged yet. The suspect’s name isn’t being released because he is a juvenile.
Four other students were injured.
FBI agent Scott Wilson said after Monday morning’s shooting that there was one suspected shooter. He wouldn’t discuss the extent of the students’ injuries.
The shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. Monday at Chardon High School.
Chardon is about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
Television news footage showed anxious parents escorting children away from a school building, and ambulances could be seen outside.
Chardon is a city of about 5,100 residents.
