Recovery fund helps Ohio school shooting victim


CHARDON, Ohio (AP) -- About $787,000 has been donated to a recovery fund created after a northeast Ohio high school shooting that killed three students and seriously injured two more in February.

The News-Herald in Willoughby ( ) reports an advisory board oversees distribution of the money meant for victims' families and to encourage healing in the community around Chardon High School.

About $85,000 has been handed out so far. Some of the money helped provide for wounded student Nick Walczak (WAHL'-zahk) to get ramps at his home to accommodate his wheelchair. He also got a specially equipped vehicle to ride to the school prom.

Money from the recovery fund also has been used to support parent nights and events featuring guest speakers.

A teen is charged in the Feb. 27 shooting.
