Emotions running high in downtown Chardon

CHARDON, OH (WOIO) -

As the families of two more of the Chardon High School shooting victims prepare to bury their sons, dozens of community members flocked to Chardon Square looking for comfort.

Marissa Steiner reads the St. Joseph's prayer written on the candle she brought to the square Sunday afternoon. "You just don't know what to do. So you bring some candles.. and flowers. Our hearts are still aching" says Steiner.

The downtown gazebo has become a place where anyone can come to pay their respects to the Chardon High School shooting victims. Residents can view candles, flowers, pictures and words of healing and strength for the victims' families.

Chardon Square now serves as a reminder of who was lost nearly one week ago, and what will never be forgotten.

Monday morning, February 27th, suspected student gunman TJ Lane reportedly opened fire at Chardon High School shooting five students. Three of the students later died.

Lane was taken into custody about an hour after the shooting and was charged Thursday with three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
