Five Wounded in Shooting at School in Ohio

CHARDON, Ohio — Five students have been injured in a shooting this morning at Chardon High School. 

According to the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI, a suspect has been arrested. Scott Wilson of the FBI said they believe there was only one shooter, but the incident remains under investigation. 

Initial reports were that four students were shot. But at a news conference about 10:30 a.m., officials said there was a fifth victim.

The youth who was arrested had fled the high school building, but was caught on Woodin Road in Chardon Township, a law officer said. The boy is being processed at the sheriff’s office, according to reports about 9 a.m.

Oh dear.  Prayers for healing and recovery of the young people involved and for support for their families and the emergency services who have had to deal with this.

One of the five has died.  This is very small town about a half an hour from where I live.  The last place on earth you would have expected this to happen. Pray for all the families involved.  Such a sad day.
