Hundreds honor student killed in Ohio shooting


CHARDON, Ohio (AP) -- One of three Ohio teenagers killed in a high school shooting is being remembered as a computer whiz and for his laugh and wit.

   Hundreds of people stood shoulder to shoulder along a street in Chardon on a cold, windy Saturday morning to honor 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor. The Plain Dealer reports Parmertor's family said they planned to bury him with his first paycheck -- still unopened -- from his new job at a bowling alley.

   Those honoring the teen wore the school's colors of red and black and huddled in hoods, knit hats and blankets. They held U.S. flags and signs featuring red hearts and saying "We are One Heartbeat." Some expressed continued disbelief about Monday's attack.

   The funeral Mass was held at the Church of St. Mary across the street from the school complex where the attack occurred.

   Parmertor's funeral was the first of three. Services for 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin will be held Tuesday and for 17-year-old Russell King Jr. on Thursday.

   Chardon High alumni and community members gathered Saturday evening for a memorial.
