Kentucky High School Shooting Leaves One Dead, Many Wounded

1 dead multiple injured’ in KY. high school shooting- governor

Two people were killed and 17 others were injured in a shooting at Marshall County High School in southwestern Kentucky Tuesday morning, Gov. Matt Bevin said Tuesday afternoon. The second victim was a 15-year-old male who died at the hospital, according to the governor.

It's not always an outsider though, police say the suspect involved in Monday's mass shooting at a Kentucky school is a student who brought a gun to school and shot seven people.

Kentucky State Police is reporting the scene is secured and the suspect is in custody.

"I was sitting in the library and there is a Plexiglas wall behind me", a Marshall County student explained. The entrance is now blocked off. Investigators expect their work will take several days.

Four others suffered other injuries, he said, calling the shooting "heartbreaking".

The investigation will include looking into the teen's home life, along with interviews with student witnesses and others in the are when it happened.

The identity of the suspect has not been released and officials said it is not known if he would be charged as an adult. Austin's mother, Andrea, said that her son was shot in the arm and might lose that arm but praised the heroic actions of a student and teacher who got him in a auto and rushed him to the hospital after the shooting stopped. They say the shooter was a 15-year-old boy who attended the school. "Just terrified for their kids", Mr Garland said. "They were trying to get out of there".

Several ambulances and police cars were seen near the entrance of the high school. Officers in black fatigues carrying assault rifles showed up as well.

That student is in custody at a local juvenile jail.

Parents desperately searched for their teenagers; business owners pulled fleeing youths to safety; a state trooper rushed to the school, terrified he would find his own daughter among the dead.

This is the second shooting at a USA high school in the last 24 hours. Authorities report that the gunman walked into his high school at 7:57 am and opened fire on his classmates.

Bevin called the shooting at Marshall County High School quote "heartbreaking" and is asking people to avoid speculation at this time to allow the facts to come out. She said she never would've thought this would happen here. "Everyone just dropped their stuff and ran", Allissa Hubbard, 16, told member station WKMS. "It sounded like his heart was in his throat".

"Everyone is just scared".
