Ohio School Shooter T.J. Lane Escapes from Prison

Local news reports

The convicted killer of three Ohio students at a high school cafeteria escaped from a prison Thursday night and a search was underway in northwest Ohio, police said.

Nineteen-year-old T.J. Lane escaped along with two other inmates from a prison in Lima, about 80 miles south of Toledo, and one of the inmates was captured, Lima police Sgt. Andy Green said.
A search was underway in woods and a residential area near the prison, Green said, and the two escapees are considered dangerous.

Lane, then 18, pleaded guilty last year to shooting three students in February 2012 at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. He said he didn't know why he did. At his sentencing, he unbuttoned his dress shirt to reveal his T-shirt reading "killer"; he cursed and gestured obscenely as he was given three life sentences.


  1. "DEVELOPING: Authorities say they have apprehended the convicted killer of three Ohio students who escaped from a prison.

    The Ohio State Highway Patrol and police in Lima said around 1: 30 a.m. Friday that Lane had been caught. No further details were available."

    1. Right, the police caught him not some club calling themselves the Huey Newton's, or some civilian gun loon carrying a gun.

    2. Thanks for the update, ss. I saw that almost immediately after posting the story and meant to add it as an update.
