Convicted shooter, T.J. Lane, prompted a massive manhunt when he escaped from prison on Thursday night. Thomas “T.J.” Lane, 19, today’s been captured and returned to the Allen Correctional Facility in Lima, Ohio.
Lane, who is serving three life sentences for killing three students at Chardon High School in 2012, escaped along with another inmate from Allen Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio, at around 7:30 p.m. A dispatcher at the Ohio State Highway Patrol Lane said Lane was taken into custody at about 1:20 a.m. Friday in the area of the prison.
Lane’s escape prompted the school district which runs the high school where he shot dead the three students to cancel classes Friday and offer counselors to rattled students. Lane opened fire on a cafeteria table full of students at Chardon High School on Feb. 27, 2012, killing three students — Demetrius Hewlin, 16; Russell King Jr., 17; and Daniel Parmertor, 16 — and wounding three more, one of whom was reportedly paralyzed.
Even if T.J. isn’ a household name, he’s clearly notorious enough to put the fear of God in his hometown.
