Prosecutors say school shooting suspect TJ Lane didn't know his victims and chose them randomly inside Chardon High School, reports AP. The 17-year-old appeared briefly in juvenile court today and was ordered held for at least 15 days. Prosecutors have until March 1 to file charges in the attack, which killed three and wounded two. Geauga County prosecutor David Joyce said Lane, whom he described as "someone who is not well," admitted firing 10 shots with a .22-caliber pistol. Earlier reports speculated that Lane went after that particular table because one of the victims was dating his ex-girlfriend. (Read more TJ Lane stories.)
