A shooter “killer” T-shirt is making top news headlines today, as UPI News reported this Tuesday, March 19, that T.J. Lane, the convicted teen who shot and killed three students after opening fire at an Ohio high school back in Feb. 2012, wore a t-shirt that had the handwritten word “Killer” on the front to his court hearing this morning.
Under the headline, “Shooter 'killer' T-shirt: Ohio teen wears ‘KILLER’ t-shirt to sentencing”, sources report that T.J. Lane — who was convicted of three counts of murder and sentenced to three life sentences without parole for the killing of Demetrius Hewlin, Russell King Jr., and Daniel Parmertor last year — wore a shirt today that seemed to reinforce his former insanity plea.
Video courtroom footage reveals that the 18-year-old school shooting culprit was seen smiling as family members of the victims spoke in court. He cursed at one point in the hearing and flipped the middle finger to the jury as well.
The shooter “killer” T-shirt headline has brought T.J. Lane’s case back to light this week; the teen recently pleaded guilty almost a year after the initial shooting to three counts of murder and one count of felonious assault. Last year, Lane had filed a plea of not guilty for reasons of insanity.
The video footage of the day of the school shooting also revealed Lane wearing a shirt with the word “killer” on it, much like the shocking t-shirt he wore to the court hearing this week.
