1 killed in Kentucky high school shooting, governor says

A gunman has opened fire at a school in Benton Kentucky

The students killed were Bailey Holt, a 15-year-old girl who was pronounced dead at the scene, and Preston Cope, a 15-year-old boy who died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, state police said.

The first victim was a 15-year-old female who died at the scene.

The shooting in Kentucky comes just one day after another school shooting in Texas.

In the wake of the deadly shooting at Marshall County High School, many church leaders held prayer vigils and services Tuesday night.

News 2 has learned two 16-years-olds, a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old were all injured. It's good that the alleged shooter was caught, but it's so heartbreaking that yet another shooting has taken place in an American high school. "And for some in this community, will never fully heal", Gov. Matt Bevin said Tuesday.

"We have various security cameras placed throughout the campus that can be monitored by SROs, administrators and the offices", Neshoba Central School District Transportation and Safety Director Michael Thomas said.

Sanders said students had recently undergone training in how to respond to active shooters in their school hallways. "They was just kids running down the highway". Marshall County High School students are being bused to North Middle where they can be picked up.

Struggling Southampton battle to a point against Spurs
Had it not been for a last-gasp touch by Southampton's rearguard, Lamela would have scored the victor in final 10 minutes. If Saints can shut out Spurs the way they did against United, they give themselves the best possible chance.

Authorities found a 15-year-old student dead at the scene of the shooting when they arrived just after 8 a.m. "I don't think anything can say one bad thing about him", Andrea Austin said.

Another officer reports that he is on the back side of the high school with the Marshall County Sheriff, and they have found a Ruger pistol that they are collecting.

The school has an enrollment of 1,146 students in grades 10 through 12.

"He gave me a call as soon as he run out the door and I didn't know what was happening to him", he told the AP.

In a second statement Tuesday morning around 11:00 a.m., Bevins said Tuesday's tragedy "speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities".

Finally, this video was shot by Chad Darnell, a photojournalist from WPSD in Paducah, KY, which is located about 30 miles northwest of Benton.
