Teen charged as juvenile in Ohio school shooting
CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio 17-year-old has been charged with three juvenile counts of aggravated murder in a school shooting that killed three fellow students and wounded two.
The charges were announced Thursday afternoon against T.J. Lane.
The boy is accused of opening fire Monday in the cafeteria at Chardon High School.
Lane also faces two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
The juvenile counts of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder would mean only a few years in detention if Lane is convicted.
But the prosecutor has already said he plans to try the boy as an adult. That could mean life in prison if he is found guilty.
