Demetrius Hewlin, Chardon Ohio High School Shooting Victim
HYATTSVILLE, Md. (WUSA) -- Hyattsville resident Timothy Hewlin says the last time he saw his son, Demetrius, was about a year ago when he went to Ohio for Demetrius' birthday.
Little did he know at the time, that would be the last time he would ever see his son.
Sixteen-year-old Demetrius Hewlin was one of three students from Chardon High School in Ohio who were shot to death last Monday, allegedly by 17 year-old T.J. Lane, a student at a school for at-risk kids who prosecutors say randomly chose his victims.
According to Timothy, Demetrius had lived in Ohio with his mother since he was a little boy.
Despite that, Timothy said he and Demetrius had a great relationship, traveled all over the country together, and he can't can't imagine life without him.
"I'm a religious person, and I believe one day we're all going to meet up, " Timothy said.
