On the two-year anniversary of the deadly shooting at Chardon High School, the father of one of the victims was found dead.

Russell King, Sr. was found dead at his home around 5 a.m. Thursday by a family member.

No word on a cause of death at this time. Foul play is not suspected.

An autopsy will determine King’s cause of death.

A very close friend to the King family tells 19 Action News that they are shocked, they are stunned and believe King, Sr. died of a broken heart.

Russell King, Jr., Demetrius Hewlin and Daniel Parmertor were killed by a student gunman at Chardon High on Feb. 27, 2012.
