Chardon High School Shooting
Otra vez se repite la triste historia de otro tiroteo en una escuela secundaria. Según los primeros informes un hombre armado que al parecer seria un estudiante abrió fuego en la cafetería del la institución estudiantil matando a un estudiante e hiriendo a cuatro. El agresor fue arrestado.
Scott Wilson, agente del FBI, dijo que se sospecha de un solo agresor en el incidente, pero se negó a proporcionar información sobre las lesiones de los estudiantes atacados.
El tiroteo se reportó cerca de las 7:30 de la mañana en la escuela secundaria Chardon, ubicada a aproximadamente 50 kilómetros (30 milas) al este de Cleveland, indicó Erin Knife, comisario civil de la policía del condado de Geauga.
Las imágenes de televisión mostraron a padres ansiosos acompañando a sus hijos hacia afuera de las instalaciones académicas mientras las ambulancias podían verse en el exterior.
"No contamos con información actualizada sobre el estado de los estudiantes", dijo Ellen Ondrey, vocera del sistema escolar de Chardon, a The Associated Press. "Nuestros buenos deseos y oraciones van para ellos. Estamos muy preocupados".
Angela Kiska, de la Clínica Cleveland, dijo a la estación de televisión WJW-TV que dos de las víctimas fueron trasladadas al Hospital Hillcrest.
Ondrey dijo que todas las clases en el distrito fueron canceladas.
Los estudiantes de la secundaria ya habían iniciado las actividades al momento del tiroteo, pero los autobuses escolares de la escuela primaria fueron detenidos, dijo Ondrey.
Las autoridades indicaron a los padres de los estudiantes de la secundaria que recogieran a sus hijos en las instalaciones de la escuela primaria Maple.
"Queremos dejar en claro que los estudiantes están a salvo", dijo, y pidió a los padres de familia no apresurarse al ir por los alumnos porque el área se encuentra congestionada.

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — A gunman opened fire inside a high school cafeteria at the start of the school day Monday, killing one student and wounding four others, authorities said. A suspect — believed to be a student — was arrested a short distance away.
The suspect was taken into custody near his car a half-mile from the suburban Cleveland school, the FBI said.
FBI agent Scott Wilson would not comment on a possible motive for the attack.
Panicked students screamed and ran through the halls when gunfire broke out around 7:30 a.m. at 1,100-student Chardon High School.
Heather Ziska, 17, said she was in the cafeteria when she and other students heard popping noises in the hall. She said she saw a boy she recognized as a fellow student come into the cafeteria and start shooting.
She said she and several others immediately ran outside, while other friends ran into a middle school and others locked themselves in a teachers' lounge.
"Everybody just started running," said 17-year-old Megan Hennessy, who was in class when she heard loud noises. "Everyone was running and screaming down the hallway."
Five students were taken to Cleveland-area hospitals, officials said. One student later died, Police Chief Timothy McKenna said. The suspect is a juvenile who was not immediately charged. His name was not released.
The condition of the wounded students was not disclosed.
Students at the high school and the middle school had already started their day when the shooting happened, but bus runs for elementary school children were stopped. All classes in the district were canceled.
Parents of high school students were told to go to an elementary school to pick up their children. Anxious parents could be seen escorting children away.
Chardon, a town of about 5,100 people, is about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
