CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — Hundreds of people standing shoulder to shoulder along the street in the cold have lined up to honor one of three teenagers killed in a shooting at an Ohio high school.

The Saturday morning service in Chardon for 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor is the first of the three funerals. Services for 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin and 17-year-old Russell King Jr. will be held next week.


The attack on Monday also wounded two other students at Chardon High School, about 30 miles east of Cleveland. One remains in serious condition. A second has been released from the hospital.

Charges filed in juvenile court accuse 17-year-old T.J. Lane of aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and felonious assault. His next hearing is Tuesday.

Police were on hand Friday as classes resumed at the 1,100-student school.
