Ohio official: Shooting suspect among at-risk kids

Ohio education official: Suspect in deadly shooting attends school for at-risk kids By The Associated Press

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) ' A teenage suspect in the deadly shooting of one student and wounding of four others at a suburban Cleveland high school attends a separate school for at risk students about 16 miles away.

An education official said Monday the suspected shooter is a Lake Academy student, not a student at Chardon High School, where the shootings occurred.

Brian Bontempo declined to answer any further questions about the student. Bontempo is the superintendent of the Lake County Educational Service Center, which operates the academy.

The alternative school in Willoughby serves 7th through 12th grades. Students may have been referred to the school because of academic or behavioral problems.

The suspect's name has not been released because he is a juvenile. He was arrested near his car a half-mile from Chardon.
