Since I had to make a video about school shootings for a German project, I've decided to make a music video for all people who lost a loved one because of an incident like Columbine or VT.

One student is dead and four others wounded after a shooting at a northeastern Ohio high school.
Classes at Chardon area schools are reportedly cancelled. The extent of the students’ injuries is currently unclear — and the Associated Press is reporting a suspect is now in custody. (Video: Fox News)
According to WYTV and WOIO — police located the suspect by following his footprints in the snow. An unnamed source within the superintendent’s office told WYTV the suspect was a current student who is believed to have brought the weapon to school.
The victims included four boys and one girl. MSNBC has newly-released video of the suspected shooter being taken into custody — and talked with a guest who says the small-knit community of Chardon is still reeling.
“A kid in handcuffs being taken to the side of the street and escorted away by police. We believe him to be the shooter in question ... For something like this to happen, it's just, it's very shocking. You never know what goes on in other people's minds...”
According to WOIO —
“...a teacher chased the student gunman from the building. The suspect later surrendered to two innocent bystanders about an hour later. The 17-year-old suspect is cooperating with police.”
The incident reportedly occurred at 7:30 am Eastern time — before classes were set to begin. WKYC reports the shooter’s motive is still unclear — but earlier in the morning — officials worried there was a second gunman.
“So much was the concern weighing on the minds of authorities out there, they locked down the courthouse. ... That proved to be inaccurate. There was not a second gunman.”
Press conferences are expected throughout the day. Stay with Newsy for all the latest on this developing story.

Authorities say at least 26 people, including 18 children, were killed Friday when a gunman clad in black military gear opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school.
This is the official commemoration page for the Newton Conneticut Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Victims.
The shooter, identified as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, lived in Hoboken, N.J., and had ties to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., according to officials. The gunman was found dead inside the building, but it remains unclear who killed him.
Local news outlets report that the shooting occurred inside a kindergarten classroom, and that all the pupils in that classroom are unaccounted for.
An official with knowledge of the situation said the shooter was armed with a .223-caliber rifle. The motive is not yet known.
Police are also questioning another man in connection with the shooting. Witnesses told the Connecticut Post that a handcuffed man, dressed in camouflage, was led out of a nearby woods by officers.
Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance said during an afternoon news conference that police arrived at the scene "within minutes" of a 911 call placed shortly after 9:30 a.m.
"Every door, every crack, every crevice of that school" was checked, Vance said. "The entire school was searched."
Vance did not give details about the number of victims other than to say they included students and staff, pending notification of the families. He said more information would be released, possibly later Friday.
The massacre began inside the school's main office as the principal was making morning announcements. Sources told Fox News students throughout the school could hear gunshots over the intercom system before the gunman entered the kindergarten classroom and continued his bloody rampage.
A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps said a teacher was shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital. Local news outlets also reported that the principal was among those shot.
Parent Lisa Procaccini told Fox News that her daughter was sitting in a classroom when she and others heard gun shots.
"She was in a small class -- a reading group and they started hearing bangs," Procaccini said. "Her teacher, and I'm grateful for this, rushed kids into the bathroom and locked the door. They told kids it was hammering and tried to keep them calm."
"Children were crying," Procaccini said. "She did tell me about a little boy that was in a police officer's arms, bleeding. I don't know if she gets it."
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said two firearms were recovered from the scene.
President Obama was notified of the shooting around 10:30 am ET, White House officials said.
The Newtown School District has locked down schools as a preventive measure to ensure the safety of students and staff.
A statement on the district's website stated that afternoon kindergarten classes have been canceled.
The elementary school has close to 700 students.
Newtown is in Fairfield County, about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 60 miles northeast of New York City.
