Prosecutors have until Thursday to bring charges and are expected to ask that Lane be tried as an adult. He will probably be charged with three counts of aggravated murder and other offenses, Joyce said.
Joyce described suspect Lane as "someone who’s not well" and said the teen didn’t know the victims but chose them randomly.
Killed were Demetrius Hewlin, 16, Russell King Jr., 17, and Daniel Parmertor, 16.
An 18-year-old girl who was hurt in the shootings was released from the hospital Tuesday and was home with family. The girl’s family declined to comment Wednesday. The second injured teen remained in serious condition at a suburban Cleveland hospital.
Both sides in the legal case are under a gag order imposed by the judge at the prosecutor’s request. The judge also barred media outlets from taking photos of the faces of the suspect and some of his relatives.
The Associated Press transmitted photos and video of Lane that were shot before the hearing. The AP and at least one other media outlet, The Plain Dealer of Cleveland, plan to challenge the judge’s order Wednesday.
