Final arrangements made for Chardon shooting victim Daniel Parmertor

CHARDON, Ohio - Funeral arrangements have been made for the first victim of the Chardon High School shooting.

Daniel Parmertor, 16, died Monday after being taken by Life Flight to MetroHealth Medical Center for a gunshot wound to the head. Parmertor was one of three students killed when the alleged student gunman opened fire at the high school Monday morning. Two others were injured.

Visitation for Parmertor will be Friday from noon until 8 p.m. at Monreal Funeral Home on Curtis Boulevard in Willoughby. On Saturday, the funeral service will begin at 10 a.m. with Parmertor being buried in All Souls Cemetery.

According to his obituary, the junior at Chardon High School and Auburn Career Center enjoyed playing Xbox and skiing, as well as hanging out with his friends on wing night at Cleats.

"I think it's just a senseless tragedy. It's a shame that somebody has to do something like this to prove a point. If you have a problem, you need to contact your local police department and handle it the proper way and not take matters into your own hands," said Danny's uncle, Ron Parmertor.

"He was a really nice young man. I really enjoyed his company. I played basketball with him once in awhile. I'm in shock over this as many are, and I'm really going to miss this kid. He was good to me," said neighbor Ben Miraglia.

Danny is survived by his parents Robert and Dina, and his siblings Dominic and Jenna.
