Ohio Shooting 911 Tapes Released

Officials in Chardon, Ohio, the site of a school shooting Monday that left three students dead and two wounded, released 911 tapes Tuesday night that recorded the panicked appeals for help of the students and staff inside Chardon High School. “We just had a shooting at our school,” one girl said to a police dispatcher. When asked if she had seen the shooter, the girl replied, “No … I just saw the gun.” In the tapes, the high school’s principal can be heard ordering that the school enter lockdown. At a hearing Tuesday, 17-year-old T.J. Lane confessed to firing 10 rounds with a .22-caliber pistol in the school. A prosecutor at the hearing described Lane as “not well,” and Geauga County prosecutor David Joyce told reporters that Lane will likely be tried as an adult.
