Thomas “T.J.” Lane, the convicted shooter who opened fire on an Ohio school in 2012 and killed three, set off a massive manhunt when he escaped from an Ohio prison on Thursday evening.
The 19-year-old was recaptured a short while later — authorities returned him to the Allen Correctional Facility in Lima early Friday.
The teenager is currently serving three life sentences for killing three students at Chardon High School.
Lane’s escape prompted the school district which runs the high school where he shot dead the three students to cancel classes Friday and offer counselors to rattled students. Lane opened fire on a cafeteria table full of students at Chardon High School on Feb. 27, 2012, killing three students — Demetrius Hewlin, 16; Russell King Jr., 17; and Daniel Parmertor, 16 — and wounding three more, one of whom was reportedly paralyzed.
“Our thoughts and prayers today go out to the families of Demetrius, Russell and Danny and all others affected by the tragedy as well as by the troubling events from Thursday evening,” Chardon Local Schools Superintendent Michael P. Hanlon, Jr. said in a statement to parents.
If you recall, Lane is the teenager who wore a t-shirt with the word “KILLER” scribbled on the front during his sentencing. Lane also shouted obscenities and flipped the bird to the victims’ families.
Another inmate, Clifford Opperud, escaped with Lane on Thursday evening. Authorities say Opperud, a 45-year-old serving a 12-year sentence for robbery, burglary, and kidnapping, is still on the loose.
