I live in Chardon, OH. I know...an odd place for a Bama fan. The house is directly beside the high school and this situation has shaken the entire community. It is a very safe place with little to no crime. I got the call this morning as soon as I got to work and rushed immediately home to my newborn and lady to protect them in any way I could since the gunman was on the loose. I commend the local authorities (there are very few as we have little crime) for their swift action and the coaches at the high school for their heroic deeds. If you weren't aware...the coach charged the gunman even though the gun was aimed directly at him to protect his students. Thoughts and prayers go out to every student (especially the injured), parent, and resident of the small town. Thanks.
That's a REAL hero!
Give him a big ROLL TIDE from BOL
Hold down the fort man. Best of luck to you and everyone around you.
As a parent of two in school • High school and Middle... I hate these situations.
Glad you and your family are ok. My prayers go out to those injured, their families, and the community.
My prayers go out to your family and your entire community.
thank you all so much for the thoughts. i love this town (other than the insane amounts of snowfall - most in ohio). it's very small, safe, and beautiful out in the hills. you'd never know you're so close to cleveland. it honestly reminds me of small town alabama, and trust me there are plenty of rednecks in the hills out here. again...your thoughts and prayers are much appreciated. as of now I think two have died with only one announced. awful stuff.
Couldn't believe it when I heard it was Chardon. Most of my extended family is from the area and most of my cousins went to Chardon High. My folks recently went up for their 40 yr reunion. Glad u are and your family are safe. Prayers to all those affected.
My brother was in Discovery Middle School when the Feb. 5, 2010 shooting happened. I couldn't even describe the terror it struck in my heart when I found out, let-alone actually being there. I know exactly what the OP is going through.
