A third student died Tuesday morning in the suburban Cleveland high school shooting that left two other students dead after a teenager allegedly opened fire in the cafeteria Monday, CBS News said.

Demetrius Hewlin, a student from Chardon High School, and was listed in critical condition, passed away Tuesday morning.

Hewlin's family released a statement saying, "We are very saddened by the loss of our son and others in our Chardon community. Demetrius was a happy young man who loved life and his family and friends. We will miss him very much but we are proud that he will be able to help others through organ donation. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time."

Another student, Russell King Jr., was declared brain dead Tuesday. It was unclear at first whether King was to remain on life support, a statement referred to him as both brain dead and deceased.
