$1 Million Bond Set For T.J. Lane, Accused Shooter In Ohio School Shooting

The accused shooter in the Chardon Ohio high school shooting, T.J. Lane, has been given a $1 million bond, effectively keeping him locked up after police and prosecutors say he shot and killed three fellow students and injured tow others.

In his court appearance at the Geauga County Common Pleas Court, Lane pleaded not guilty, the court however gave his defense attoroney 30 days to amend the plea to not guilty by reason of insanity if that is the defense stratagey.

Lane has admitted to firing 10 shots at a groups of students in the schools cafeteria. Unconfirmed reports say he was arrested while weraing a t-shit with the word "killer" on it.

Of the 1,100 students at Chardon High School, Russell King Jr., 17; and Demetrius Hewlin and Daniel Parmertor, both 16 were killed and two more sustained serious injuries but are expected to be ok, a sixth suffered a bullet grazing of his skin.

Earlier this week a juvenile court ruled he should be tried as an adult and a grand jury indicted T.J. Lane. One June 18th, Lane will be transferred from juvenile detention to the Geauga County Jail.
