CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians owner Larry Dolan has offered his sympathies on behalf of his family and team to Chardon, Ohio, where the death toll rose to three after a shooting rampage in a high school cafeteria.

Dolan was a long-time resident and raised six children in Chardon, an eastern suburb Cleveland. In a statement released by the team Tuesday, Dolan and his family offered sympathy for what they called "the senseless tragedy." Dolan expressed his hope for strength to the survivors and "for all of you peace and tranquility in due time."

Dolan has owned the Indians since 2000, when he bought the club from Richard Jacobs. Dolan's son, Paul, is the team's chief executive officer.
