CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — Three northeast Ohio students gunned down a year ago by another student will be remembered Wednesday, which also sadly marks another year of mass shootings around the country.
The Chardon High School observances come one day after the gunman pleaded guilty to charges in the Feb. 27, 2012, deaths of 16-year-olds Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin and 17-year-old Russell King Jr.
T.J. Lane, now 18, could get life in prison when he is sentenced March 19.
Since the rampage, other mass shootings have shocked the nation, including 12 people gunned down at a Colorado movie theater; six killed at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin; and 26 Connecticut first-graders and educators slain before Christmas.
The Wednesday observances at Chardon include a memorial walk to the town square.
