Wearing a white T-shirt with the word "KILLER" in capital letters scrawled on it, the Ohio teenager charged with shooting three students to death and wounding three others last February appeared at his sentencing in the rural community of Chardon on Tuesday morning.
T.J. Lane, 18, pleaded guilty last month to all charges against him in the Feb. 27, 2012, shootings, in which he opened fire on a cafeteria table full of students. At the time, police said he was wearing a T-shirt with the same word emblazoned on it as on Tuesday.
In a brief statement during his sentencing on Tuesday, Lane flipped his middle finger to people in the courtroom, which included family members of his victims, reported NBC affiliate WKYC.com. He revealed his "KILLER" T-shirt to the court once he was inside, taking off a blue button-down shirt he had worn on the way in, the station reported.
Three students -- Demetrius Hewlin, 16; Russell King Jr., 17; and Daniel Parmertor, 16 -- were killed last February. Nate Mueller and Joy Rickers were wounded, as was Nick Walczak, who is paralyzed from the waist down, according to Reuters.
