Family asks for privacy in wake of passing.

A third teen has died from wounds sustained in yesterday's shooting at a high school in Chardon, Ohio.

A Cleveland hospital announced Tuesday afternoon that Demetrius Hewlin died earlier in the morning.

His death came hours after the passing of 17-year-old Russell King, Junior.

Another student, Daniel Parmertor, died shortly after the shooting Monday morning.

Hewlin was a student at Chardon High; King and Parmertor attended the nearby Auburn Career Center and were waiting for a bus at Chardon.

Thomas "T.J." Lane, a 17-year-old student, is accused firing on students in the Chardon High cafeteria.

Lane attended the Lake Academy, another area school for "at risk" students, and was also at Chardon to catch a bus.

Federal agents still haven't shared any evidence of a motive in the shootings.

They are still in the early stages of what is expected to be a very long investigation.
