The court battle over the Chardon Healing Fund is far from over, but Thursday brought a partial victory for the victims' families.
AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Authorities say one man is hospitalized and four jailed in his beating following a gathering to celebrate the memory of a friend killed in an Ohio high school shooting.
Police tell The Vindicator newspaper officers were called on a noise complaint to an apartment in Austintown, outside Youngstown, where the group gathered Tuesday, the one-month anniversary of the Chardon High School shooting that killed three students.
Police say officers left and the suspects beat the 19-year-old victim, who was drunk, to keep him quiet. They're accused of then dragging him outside and into a van, with plans to leave him on a roadside.
Troopers say they pulled over the van and found the bloodied victim. He is expected to recover.
The four others, ages 19-21, are charged with felonious assault and kidnapping. Police released their names: Nathan Brewer, Nick Nelson, James Castle and Anthony Zingale.
