CHARDON --  Chardon gathered in sadness Tuesday as Demetrius Hewlin was laid to rest.

Funeral services were held for the 16-year-old at The Church of St. Mary. Demetrius died after being shot at Chardon High School last week. 

He is the second of three victims to be laid to rest.  A third victim, Russell King Jr. will be buried later this week.

People lined the streets of the funeral procession route with signs and banners bearing heart symbols as a show of support for Demetrius and his family.

Demetrius' funeral comes as the teen charged in the shooting made a court appearance.  T.J. Lane could end up being tried in adult court. 

You can leave an on-line tribute or light a virtual candle for Demetrius.
