They better try this kid as an adult…
The toll in the Chardon High School shooting grew today with the death of a third shooting victim.
Russell King and Demetrius Hewlin, students wounded in Monday’s shooting, died this morning, officials said today.
“We are very saddened by the loss of our son and others in our Chardon community,” Hewlin’s family said in a statement. “Demetrius was a happy young man who loved life and his family and friends. We will miss him very much but we are proud that he will be able to help others through organ donation.”
They added, “We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”
Earlier today, King, 17, was pronounced brain dead at 12:42 a.m. at Ohio’s MetroHealth Medical Center, according to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office. At 4:49 a.m., police were informed that King had “passed.”
