CHARDON, Ohio - A student opened fire with a handgun in the cafeteria of an Ohio high school east of Cleveland on Monday, killing one student and wounding four others before he was chased from the building by a teacher and gave himself up, law enforcement officials said.

One of the students shot at Chardon High School has died, Chardon Police Chief Tim McKenna said. Four boys and one girl had been hospitalized after the morning shooting, according to the Geauga County Sheriff's Department.

The Ohio shooting is the worst at a US high school in 11 months and the worst in Ohio since late 2007, according to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Emergency vehicles rushed to the scene as students streamed from the building to meet parents. The entire school district was closed for the day.
