The FBI believes a student is responsible for seriously injuring several teenagers at a high school outside of Cleveland, Ohio this morning. Unconfirmed reports say as many as 5 students were shot. The victims were waiting for a bus inside the cafeteria at the Chardon High School when a student allegedly open-fired. Although the victim’s identities and injuries have not been made public, the Cleveland Clinic reported that two of the wounded students were transported by a medi-helicopter to the hospital.
The incident happened early morning at around 7:30 am, shortly after classes started. Parents were called and asked to pick up their children at a local elementary, causing panic and confusion.
According to WEWS News, one student believed that the shooter went to another school along with the victims. He also alleges the gunman posted threats via Twitter last night.
Chardon, Ohio is a small town of about 5,500 people. Many parents echoed the same sentiment, that things like this don’t happen in their tight knit community.
