T.J. Lane, who was convicted for killing three people in a 2012 school shooting, has escaped from an Ohio prison this evening. Police are currently searching for the 19-year-old convict in the neighborhoods of Northern Lima, Ohio.
Lima Police announced that Lane and fellow inmate, Clifford E. Opperud, on Facebook. They stated that both were wearing prison blues and should be considered dangerous:
On Feb. 27, 2012 Lane walked into the cafeteria of Chardon High School and started shooting randomly, killing three and hitting three more. Last year he pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder, and weapons-related charges. He's supposed to be in prison for life without parole.
We'll bring you more news as the story develops.
UPDATE: Here's the official search flyer. And in the video above you can see Lane's complete lack of remorse for his heinous crime.
Update 2: The Chardon School District has released a statement on Lane's escape. To protect students the district will make a decision about cancelling school by 5:30 a.m. tomorrow. The Chardon police department has also announced it will provide extra officers to patrol the areas near victims' families if they'd like.
