Ex-student pleads guilty in Ohio school killings

CHARDON, Ohio – A teenager charged with killing three students at an Ohio high school has pleaded guilty to aggravated murder charges.

Eighteen-year-old T.J. Lane entered the plea Tuesday in Chardon in a deal with prosecutors. Lane pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, among other charges.

Prosecutors have said that Lane fired 10 shots at students in a cafeteria at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. He was there waiting for a bus to his alternative school.

Investigators said he admitted shooting at students but that he didn't know why he did it.
