Authorities in Stark County have released some additional details on the shooting at Jackson Middle School this morning. 

Jackson Township Police Chief Mark Brink says a seventh-grade student shot himself in a school restroom. The chief says the unidentified student was carrying a long gun and “distractionary devices.”

Brink says the student was taken to the hospital by the fire department. It is unclear where he shot himself. No one else was injured.

The Village of Lakemore and Springfield Township now have their own library. The Akron-Summit County Public Library is opening a branch there this weekend.

The new location was made possible by a county-wide levy passed in 2015.

Outgoing library Director David Jennings says the opening marks one of his final goals.

During tragedies like this week's Florida school shooting, most people aren’t concerned with the mental well-being of journalists covering the events — not even the reporters themselves.

Kent State professor Gretchen Dworznik, a former broadcast reporter, knows that first-hand and says that's what drew her to researching trauma in journalists.

Plans to demolish the fire damaged Cornus Hill Mansion in Fairlawn are raising questions about the fates of other historical buildings in the area.
