GEAUGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The 17-year-old is accused of killing three and injuring two of his classmates at Chardon High School faced a judge again Tuesday afternoon.

TJ Lane is charged with three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault for the student snipped in the ear.

Lane answered several of the judge's questions about his being aware of his rights and the charges against him. 

The suspected teen shooter also had no objection to his personal juvenile record being released.

However, his family objects.  The court ruled it needed more time to rule on the matter.

Lane is accused of going on a shooting spree just before the start of classes last Monday in the
area of Chardon High School's cafeteria.

17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor and 16-year-old
Demetrius Hewlin were killed. 17-year-old Nick Walczak has been transferred
from Hillcrest Hospital to MetroHealth Medical Center for intensive
rehabilitation. Nick was shot several times, and family members say he has no
feeling in his legs. 18-year-old Joy Rickers has been released from the
hospital.

Geauga County Prosecutors filed court papers Monday to limit new information
about Lane. They are trying to block media access to any records that deal
with abuse, neglect or dependency in his family.

Prosecutors will not acknowledge any of those records exist, but they argue
Lane is already under "public scrutiny" and any release of those records
"would only magnify the situation for him and his relatives."
