It's been more than three years since the deadly shooting at Chardon High School. 

TJ Lane was convicted in the February 27, 2012 shooting that killed 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor and 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin in the school's cafeteria. 

Lane was sentenced to serve three life prison sentences. 

Memorial organizers hope to have the park built by June 2016.
