Motter said he contacted Waynesfield-Goshen High School Principal T.J. Winkler Monday after a gunman opened fire inside a high school cafeteria in Chardon at the start of the school day, wounding three students, two of whom later died. A suspect, now reported as being a 17-year old student, was arrested a short distance away. The school is approximately 30 miles east of Cleveland.
Three showings of the film, “Windfall,” have been scheduled for the next month with the first viewing possible this weekend.
