  • Shooting at all-boys Catholic high school near Cincinnati
    A Cincinnati-area high school was on lockdown this morning after reports of a shooting. Hamilton County police say a student shot himself in a classroom at La Salle High School, an all-boys Catholic school. The student was taken to the hospital; his condition is unknown. The school had been on lockdown and all of the students were taken to the gym. Many parents have picked up their kids.

    Crimes involving guns to face tougher penalties  in Ohio 
    Ohioans who repeatedly use guns to commit crimes would face tougher penalties under a proposed new law backed by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and fellow Republicans. DeWine was scheduled to join state Sen. Jim Hughes, of Columbus, and Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien at a Monday news conference to announce the Violent Career Criminal Act. The proposal is aimed at reducing violent gun crimes. It comes as President Barack Obama and other Democrats are citing the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Ct., in efforts to boost registration and background check requirements for gun owners. The Ohio bill would impose longer prison sentences for certain repeat offenders convicted of crimes involving a firearm.

    West Side Market business damaged by fire to reopen
    One of the two vendors that suffered significant damage from January’s fire at Cleveland’s historic West Side Market is ready to reopen. Foster’s Meats has been closed since the fire that started at an adjacent stall, Sebastian’s Meats. The business is set to reopen on Wednesday. The entire indoor area of the market was closed for three weeks while the city had to hire a cleaning crew.
