The other two 18-year-olds were taken to Hillcrest Hospital, and their conditions are unknown.

All four were seniors at Hawken School, a private institution in Gates Mills.

"Our community is grieving right now, out of the respect for the families now, I don't have anything else to say," said Scott Looney, Hawken's head of school. "The school will release whatever information we have when we have permission and agreement from the family, but at this point, the Hawken community is reeling and grieving."

School administrators say that although classes are canceled today, grief counselors will be available for students from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
