This is horrible. Another school shooting has happened this morning — this time in Chardon, OH.
According to CNN reports:
At least three students were wounded when someone entered the cafeteria of a high school near Cleveland, Ohio, and opened fire just as the school day was beginning, police and a school board member said.
The shooting happened at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, Lt. John Hiscox of the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office said.
Three or four students were hit by the gunfire, said Larry Reiter of the Chardon Schools Board of Education. He did not know their conditions, but said helicopters had been called to take the injured to a hospital.
Chardon is a small city of about 5,100 people located 30 miles east of Cleveland. About 1,150 students attend the high school, which is next to Chardon Middle School and across the street from Maple Elementary School.
The superintendent of Chardon schools said Monday he believes there was only one gunman involved in the shooting at Chardon High School.
Police currently have one person in custody, according to a school official.
Officials just held a news conference where they confirmed that four students have been wounded. The shooter has also been confirmed as a student, who is currently in custody.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the wounded students and their families. We pray they’re able to fully recover.
