Ohio School Shooter ‘TJ Lane’ Charged As A Juvenile
17-year-old TJ Lane has been charged as a juvenile after witnesses say he shot and killed three fellow students and wounded two more at his High School in Ohio.
That does not mean that he will not be charged as an adult later in the trial, but it does rule out one sentence that some people across America were hoping for.
At Lane's initial appearance in Juvenile Court, the Prosecutor told the Judge that Lane admitted shooting the students. He said Lane told the police that he picked his targets at random.
Ultimately, Lane will likely be tried as an adult, but he won't face the death penalty because he is a minor.
