One student was killed and another four were injured after a gunman opened fire at an Ohio high school on Monday, according to local reports.

A 16-year-old identified as Daniel Parmertor died in a nearby hospital after the shooter opened fire at Chardon High School cafeteria, reported the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.

“We are shocked by this senseless tragedy,” his parents said in a statement, according to the newspaper. “Danny was a bright young boy who had a bright future ahead of him. The family is torn by this loss.”

The gunman in the attack was later identified as T.J. Lane, according to CBS News. Lane was caught near the high school around 20 minutes after the attack.

“It was almost like a firecracker went off. I turned around and saw [T.J.] standing with a gun and I saw him take a shot,” said Nate Mueller, who was sitting at a cafeteria table, when Lane approached them, according to the Plain Dealer.
