It is with great grief that one of the victims of the tragic event at OHS today was one of our own, Tate Myre. Tate was on varsity since his freshman year and was an honor student. Tate was a great young man with a bright future and beloved by all. You will be missed, Tate 💙💛

Bouchard: "We don't know where he went first and why" he went there. Suspect's parents have refused to let police question the suspect and have hired a lawyer for him. Because he is a minor, police can't question him without parent's permission. @freep

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the children who died, the children and teacher who were injured and their families, students, parents and staff at the school, and the greater community. 5/?
