Parents Of Shooting Victim Mourn His Loss

The parents of a boy killed in an Ohio school shooting say he was looking forward to picking up his paycheck from his first job. Now Bob and Dina Parmertor say they're considering burying the check with the body of their son, 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor. Dina Parmertor said this morning on NBC's Today show that the new job and his first check were all her son was talking about. Bob Parmertor says his son, killed Monday in the Chardon High School shooting, was a happy kid, always fun to be around, and fond of teasing him because he was taller. The shooting killed two other students, while another student, Nick Walczak, remains in serious condition in Hillcrest Hospital in suburban Cleveland. A fifth student has been released from the hospital. Suspect T.J. Lane has admitted firing at a group of students. A judge ordered the teen held for at least 15 days.
