LORAIN, Ohio — A Lorain High School security guard has been placed on paid administrative leave after being accused of excessive use of force on a student. Erin Gadd, director of communications and community engagement for Lorain City Schools, said the student did not need medical attention after the incident. The incident happened after school Thursday on school property, Gadd said.
Details of what prompted the excessive use of force are not immediately available.
“Our district does not condone excessive force if that is indeed what happened in this situation,” Lorain City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeff Graham said in a statement. “I will reach out to the family and the student involved so they feel comfortable returning to our school.”
The incident is under investigation by the Lorain City Schools security team and the Lorain Police Department.
Additional details will be released once police and the administration learn more about what happened.
Pop singer Adele took a moment during her show in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday to scold a security guard. The performer told the guard to stop telling people to sit down, and said into the microphone, “if people can’t see, then they can stand up.” She also cussed during the warning.
“If you don’t like dancing, don’t come to a f***ing show,” the 28-year-old singer said. Also during the show, Adele invited a man on stage who was crying during one of her songs, and he then proposed marriage to his partner while on the stage.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A Cleveland man was shot three times and survived after an early-morning shooting outside a West Side bar. The 23-year-old victim suffered gunshot wounds to his abdomen, hand and foot. He underwent surgery after paramedics took him to MetroHealth, a Cleveland police report says. The incident began about 1:30 a.m. inside R.O.C. Bar Cleveland, located at Western Avenue and West 105th Street in the city’s Cudell neighborhood, according to the report.
Witnesses said a fight broke out between the gunshot victim and several other men near the bar’s pool table, the report says. Someone sprayed pepper spray into the air during the melee, prompting security guards to force the group fighting outside. One guard told police he heard several gunshots as he closed the front door. Minutes later, the 23-year-old ran back inside and said he was shot, the report says.
A group of women helped the man outside through a kitchen door before loading him into a car. He was dropped off at the hospital a short while later, the report says.
Police later found five spent bullets just outside the bar’s front door. They also found two bullet holes in a security guard’s 2001 Buick Park Avenue that was parked on the street.
