Three students was killed and 2 were injured in a shooting Monday morning at an Ohio high school, officials said.

CHARDON, Ohio -- The deadline to file charges in a fatal Ohio high school shooting loomed as students still reeling from the slaying of three teenagers marched by the hundreds to their reopened school Thursday.

The students, many with their parents and wearing the school colors of red and black, started the day gathered around a courthouse square gazebo, quietly singing the alma mater.

Students hugged each other and parents as they left the gazebo, which was decorated with a growing memorial of candles, flowers and handwritten messages of support.

"I'm just scared for everybody and I don't know how everybody is going to act going back into school," said Theodore Rosch, 16, a freshman, as his father, Will Rosch, wrapped his left arm around his son's shoulders.
