Conn. shooting rekindles trauma at Ohio school

Updated:

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - The Connecticut school shooting tragedy has rekindled emotional trauma at a northeast Ohio school still dealing with the aftermath of a gun rampage.

At Chardon High School, which is nearing the anniversary of a shooting that killed three students, extra counselors are on hand Monday and a therapy dog is working the hallways.

District spokeswoman Ellen Ondrey says students are collecting cards and letters to send to Newtown, Conn. A photo of the Chardon student body dressed in Newtown's colors is planned at the holiday concert.

Ondrey says another tragedy like Newtown, Conn., makes trauma resurface for teachers and students in Chardon.

Eighteen-year-old T.J. Lane goes on trial on murder charges next month in Chardon in the Feb. 27 attack.
