CHARDON - A 17-year-old boy wounded in Monday's shooting rampage at an Ohio high school was declared brain dead, authorities said on Tuesday, following the death of another student.

Russell King Jr. was declared brain dead, although he still has a heart beat, Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's office administrator Hugh Shannon said. Three students wounded in the shooting remain hospitalized.

King is the second victim to have died in the shooting at Chardon High School east of Cleveland, where a gunman opened fire in the cafeteria before classes started and was then chased from the scene by a teacher and arrested nearby.

Daniel Parmertor, 16, was declared dead on Monday.
