CHARDON, Ohio - A brazen Ohio school shooter wore a T-shirt reading "killer" and flipped off family members of the victims of the shooting at his sentencing Tuesday morning.

TJ Lane walked into the Geauga County, Ohio, courtroom in a blue button-down shirt before sitting down and revealing the white T-shirt with letters handwritten in black marker.
"This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates the memory. F*** all of you," Lane said, addressing victims' families.
Lane was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murders of three Chardon High students last February. Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, both 16, and Russell King Jr., 17, were killed in the shooting.
"I want him to suffer the rest of his life, like I will suffer the rest of my life without Danny," Parmertor's mother said, calling Lane a "pathetic excuse for a human."
Lane, not handcuffed but surrounded by deputies, smirked as the victims' family members shared heartbreaking stories about how they found out the teen killed their loved ones.
"You're evil," Nick Walczak's mother said to Lane. Walczak was paralyzed from the shooting.
The 18-year-old Lane previously pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
