Defiant teen gets 3 life sentences in Ohio shooting

CHARDON, Ohio — Wearing a T-shirt with ‘‘killer’’ scrawled across it, a teenager cursed and gestured obscenely as he was given three life sentences Tuesday for shooting to death three students in an Ohio high school cafeteria.

T.J. Lane, 18, had pleaded guilty last month to shooting at students in February 2012 at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. Investigators have said he admitted to the shooting but said he did not know why he did it.
