CHARDON, Ohio -- Hundreds of people stood shoulder to shoulder along the street Saturday morning to honor one of three teenagers killed in a high school shooting.
The service in Chardon for 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor is the first of the three funerals.
Services for 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin and 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., will be held this week.
Young Parmertor's family said they planned to bury him with his first paycheck -- still unopened -- from his new job at a bowling alley, the Plain Dealer reports.
Those honoring the teen expressed disbelief about the Monday attack.
Two other students were seriously wounded when a gunman opened fire in the cafeteria at Chardon High School, about 30 miles east of Cleveland. One remains in serious condition; a second has been released from the hospital.
The Mass was held at the Church of St. Mary across the street from where the attack occurred.
Charges filed in juvenile court accuse 17-year-old T.J. Lane of aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder, and felonious assault. The Lane boy's next hearing is Tuesday.
