An Ohio Judge orders a mental competency exam for a teenager charged in a deadly school shooting last month.
Authorities say 17-year old T.J. Lane entered the cafeteria at Chardon High School located in northeastern Ohio and began shooting.
Three students were killed, two others seriously hurt. The ruling postpones next week's hearing that was set to determine if the case should move to adult court.
A northeastern Ohio school shooting leaves at least five students hurt, and the suspect, also believed to be a student, in custody.
The shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. Monday at Chardon High School about 30 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio. That's in Geauga County.
Police say the gunman opened fire in the cafeteria with a roomful of students.
The building was locked down immediately, as well as other schools in the area. The five students who were shot were taken to the hospital by helicopter.
A spokeswoman for the Cleveland Clinic says two students were taken to the clinic's Hillcrest Hospital in suburban Cleveland. While a spokeswoman for the Cleveland MetroHealth System says three other students were taken to the Cleveland hospital.
The extent of injuries is not known at this time.
Special Agent Vicki Anderson with the FBI says the shooter was taken into custody near his car, just about about half a mile away from the high school.
