Portrait Of Alleged Shooter Emerges

KHQ.COM - The 17-year-old suspected of killing two high school students and wounding three others in a shooting yesterday in Ohio was described as a loner by students and his lawyer.

Thomas "T.J." Lane, who is expected to be arraigned Tuesday for the rampage at Chardon High School, came from a violent family. His father was arrested numerous times for abusing women, including Lane's mother, according to court records cited by The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Students say that Lane was shy and targeted by bullies. Although the shooting took place at 7:30 a.m. in the Chardon High cafeteria, Lane was enrolled at Lake Academy Alternative School, an institution for "at risk" youths, according to CNN.

An eerie poem that Lane wrote on Facebook in December received extra attention in light of Monday's violence.

"In a quaint lonely town, sits a man with a frown. No job. No family. No crown. His luck had run out. Lost and alone," Lane wrote in the post that has since been deleted.

"So, to the castle he proceeds, like an ominous breeze through the trees. 'Stay back!' The Guards screamed as they were thrown to their knees. 'Oh God, have mercy, please!'"

FBI agents declined to say if they've identified a motive. On Monday, police searched his home to comb through computer files, phone records and other evidence related to planning the attack. click here to read the full article
