2012: A gunman opens fire at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, killing three and wounding three more. The 17-year-old suspect, Thomas M. Lane III, would be indicted on three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of aggravated attempted murder, and one count of felonious assault. He pled guilty almost exactly a year after the shooting, on Feb. 26, 2013, and later received three life sentences.
