Parents are picking up children now; suspect in custody

In The Region:

UPDATE: 10:37: Officials now say five were injured in the shooting, and three are at Metrohealth; they're awaiting word on conditions. A teacher chased the gunman out of the building, and the gunman then turned himself in to a couple people who were nearby. He remains in custody. 

UPDATE: 9:48 A.M. Two of the four victims were flown by helicopter to Metrohealth Medical Center. No word on their condition. The other two were taken to Hillcrest hospital. Neither Geauga County sheriff's deputies nor the FBI are providing information on the identity of the gunman, including whether he was a student.

Chardon school officials are now allowing parents to pick up their children following shootings at the small rural high school about 30 miles east of Cleveland this morning.

Superintendent Joseph Bergant  told WKYC that he believes early reports of two shooters were incorrect.

“I believe there was one person who committed the act. That person is now in custody and the school campus is now safe, however we are now dealing with large crowds of people coming to get their children.”

Bergant says he does not know the condition of the victims.

The high school shares a campus with the Chardon Middle School and is across the street from an elementary school. About 1,100 students attend the high school, which is next to Chardon Middle School and across the street from Maple Elementary School.
