Today, Representative Tim Ryan (OH-17) released the following statement in response to the shooting at a high school in Chardon, Ohio:
"I want to express my deepest condolences to the students, faculty, staff and their families affected by today's terrible tragedy at Chardon High School. We simply must work harder to ensure students are able to go to school and know that they can learn in a safe environment. The investigation into today's events will tell us more about what happened, but no official explanation will heal the pain of today's incident for the community. In the meantime, I send my most sincere wishes for a full recovery to the students who were injured and my heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Daniel Parmentor, the student who died."
