One student was killed and four were injured in a shooting Monday morning at a high school in suburban Chardon, Ohio, authorities have reported.
A suspect was taken into custody, but his name was being withheld because he’s a juvenile, said Chardon Police Chief Timothy McKenna. The suspect, who is believed to be a student at the school, has yet to be charged, the chief said.
McKenna announced the death and injuries in a televised briefing. The injured students were hospitalized, McKenna said, but he gave no additional details on their conditions.
