School Shooting - Ohio

    CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in Ohio say one student has
been killed and four others wounded in a shooting at a suburban
Cleveland high school.
     Two of the wounded are in critical condition.
     Police Chief Tim McKenna says the investigation into the
shooting at Chardon High School "is going to be very long."
     A teenager described as a bullied outcast was arrested shortly
after the shooting.
     A student who witnessed the attack says it appears the suspect
targeted a group of students sitting in the cafeteria.
     Education Secretary Arne Duncan is calling the shootings an
"unspeakable tragedy."
     Duncan says preliminary reports indicate a teacher chased the
shooter out of the school. He says without the response of school
leaders, it could have been worse. He says the Education Department
will do everything it can to offer support.
     School officials say they'll focus in the next few days on grief
counseling for survivors and families and have canceled classes
tomorrow.
     A candlelight service is being planned for tomorrow evening.
