Authorities say two teenagers were found shot in a wooded area of Ohio and authorities are trying to determine how they died, the AP reports. Jackson Township police say a Canal Fulton police officer checking on a 16-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy's welfare found them together around 8:30pm Friday in Jackson Township, about 54 miles south of Cleveland. Police found a handgun. The girl was pronounced dead at the scene. The boy died at a hospital early Saturday. Both were shot in the head. The teens were students at Northwest High School in Canal Fulton. Their deaths come just a few days after police say a 13-year-old boy shot himself at a Jackson Township middle school. He died Wednesday. (Read more shooting stories.)
