Teen Who Gunned Down 3 Students Receives 3 Life Sentences

CHARDON, Ohio (March 19, 2013)—T.J. Lane, 18, who pleaded guilty to gunning down three students and wounding three others in an Ohio high school cafeteria, received three lifetime prison sentences without the possibility of parole Tuesday.

Lane was sentenced Tuesday in Chardon, Ohio.

During the proceeding, he wore a white T-shirt with the word "killer" scrawled across it in large, apparently handwritten letters.

Lane admitted firing 10 shots last year at students at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland where he was waiting for a bus to his alternative school.

Investigators say Lane told authorities said he didn't know why he did it.

Lane was charged in adult court but wasn't eligible for the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the shootings.

Russell King, Jr., Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, were killed in the shooting.
