It was five years ago on Feb. 27, 2012 that gunfire rang out inside the Chardon High School cafeteria.
Three students — Danny Parmertor, 16; Demetrius Hewlin, 16; and Russell King Jr. 17 — died and two others were injured — Joy Rickers and Nick Walczak.
It wasn’t long before another student — Thomas “T.J.” Lane, 17 — was in police custody.
On Feb. 26, 2013, Lane pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault involving the shootings. He was sentenced to three life sentences on March 19, 2013 by Geauga County Common Pleas Court Judge David Fuhry.
