UPDATE 2/27/12 @ 1:36 p.m.
CHARDON, Ohio (WSAZ) — Investigators have released the name of the suspect in a shooting at an Ohio high school Monday morning, along with the name of one of his victims.
WKYC in Cleveland reports that TJ (Thomas) Lane is the shooting suspect. He is accused of going into Chardon High School Monday morning and opening fire, shooting five of his fellow students.
Lane fled the scene and turned himself in a short time later and is in custody at this time.
One of the five victims has died. WKYC reports his name is Daniel Parmentour.
Parmentour’s family released a statement to WKYC that said, “We are shocked by this senseless tragedy. Danny was a bright young boy who had a bright future ahead of him. The family is torn by this loss. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”
At this time, a 17-year-old male victim is in serious condition. An 18-year-old female victim is in stable condition. The names of the victims are not being released.
The victims were found in three separate locations at the school.
A press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m.
I heard “quiet, Goth kid”
Screen capture of his facebook page..with guns:
“Komertz said the alleged shooter was known as an outcast who had apparently been bullied.”
I, too was an outcast, not because I wanted to be, but because of my small size and a nasty rumor spread about me in junior high. I was bullied relentlessly throughout high school until about one month before graduation.
That’s when I broke the leg of one of my tormentors with a piece of chain. Everyone left me alone after that. I don’t think I snapped, I just finally got fed up.
I wish I had done it years before. I think the kid snapped from the bullying.
I sense a ridiculous law named after the victim on the way ...
“A suspect, whose name has not been released, is in police custody.”
I don’t know, but I smell a rat. If it were a white, male, Christian guy, I think his name would be out there. Something fishy here. Could it be he has a “different sounding” name (if you know what I mean), and that would explain the reluctance to immediately identify the perp to the public.
A. Being bullied when young is not a natural part of human life. If it happens among young people, adults should step in and teach both sides how to behave.
B. The target might not tell anyone. This can’t be controlled because even if you tell a teen they can come to you with everything, they don’t always want to.
I agree that not having close parents or a whole family is a problem. Though there can be an intact family with two losers as parents too.
Yes everyone probably experiences bully at some point of their school life. But there are always a few who are tormented every day of their lives.
I don’t know if this kid was, but I remember kids in High School how were subjected to a daily level of cruelty that had to be life altering.
His name is out there. It’s a white kid
OK, so we know it is a white guy . . . whew, a lot of the media is probably glad that is the case.
I think it's another perverted consequence of PC diplomacy.
In schools now kids will get suspended even if they are just trying to defend themselves.
For example, if a kid tried to block a punch he'd get suspended as well as the punch thrower.
I actually had to tell my own kids that if someone punches them finish the fight because you're going to get suspended anyway. They wouldn't get in trouble from me for defending themselves.
Back in the day kids would often settle things with a fight then become friends after that.
That stress reliever doesn't exist anymore.
Administrators just suspend the combatants without trying to assess the background information.
Some people feel that since they had to endure bullying, everyone should. Sorry I misread you
Obviously most bully victims don’t come back and shoot up the school. But one is enough.
The shooter and victims rode the same bus. Buses are like Lord of the Flies on wheels.
