Convicted School Shooter Escapes Prison, Captured 6 Hours Later

T.J. Lane, who is serving three life sentences for an Ohio high school shooting spree, escaped from a prison but was captured approximately six hours later, authorities said. He is now back in custody.

Lane, who is now 19, broke out of the Allen Correctional Facility Thursday along with two other prisoners, scaling the facility’s main perimeter fence. One of the escapees, Lindsey Bruce, was captured soon after, but it took authorities hours to track down Lane and Clifford Opperud, 45.

Lane was taken into custody early Friday, captured about 100 yards outside the facility’s fence, warden Kevin Jones said, reports ABC News.

“Obviously I am not happy that this happened,” Jones said at a press conference. “No warden in my position would be happy that this happened, but the facts are that I am happy that he is back in custody.”

Ohio State Patrol Captain Gary Allen said Lane didn’t escape further away due to authorities quickly setting up a perimeter. Authorities are still investigating the escape.

Lane is infamous for shooting and killing three students while wounding three others at Chardon High School on Feb. 27, 2012. He was sentenced to three life sentences.

Lane’s escape resonated with those in Chardon, Ohio, which is three hours by car from the prison. The Chardon school district closed its schools Friday because “the safety and well-being of our students, staff and community remain our highest priority.”

Timothy Hewlin, the father of Demetrius Hewlin who was killed by Lane, was appalled by Lane’s escape.

“This cannot be happening. This guy killed my son and killed three kids. What type of system are they running here?” he demanded.

Lane’s appearance in court shocked many. At his sentencing hearing Lane donned a T-shirt with the word “Killer” scrawled across his chest, shocking the victims’ families and his own lawyer. He spewed vile and unprintable words at the families of the three students he killed, gave them the middle finger and then laughed and smiled when they described him as an animal and a monster.

Lane was waiting for a bus to an alternative school when he killed three students at Chardon High School, including: Daniel Parmertor, 16, Demetrius Hewlin, 16, and Russell King Jr., 17. King had been dating Lane’s ex-girlfirend, students told ABC News at the time.
