Teen shooter to be charged with murder in Kentucky high school shooting

Bailey Nicole Holt died at the scene and Preston Ryan Cope at a hospital, Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders said.

At least two people were killed and 19 were hurt in a shooting at a Kentucky high school on Tuesday morning, according to officials in their latest update.

"Our hearts are with the entire community in Marshall County, and our gratitude is with the first responders who rushed into harm's way", McConnell said.

Sanders says the gunman walked into Marshall County High School with a pistol Tuesday morning and immediately opened fire.

The first shots were fired at 7:57 a.m., and the first 911 call was received at 7:59 a.m. The 15-year-old was hospitalized in unknown condition. "And helping them get outside and get to a safe location", Green said. Two of the victims, a 15-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl, died. "Everybody at that high school reacted appropriately".

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said there is no reason to suspect anyone else in an act of violence that rocked the small town of Benton.

"The students did exactly as they were trained", Sanders said.

Business owner Mitchell Garland said students were "crying and screaming" while running out of the school after the shooting.

"All these kids were running everywhere on the side of the road, and then I roll down my window and someone told me there was a school shooting".

"I was sitting in the library and there is a Plexiglas wall behind me", a Marshall County student explained. He would not confirm the identity of the shooter or the status of any of the victims.

Authorities found a 15-year-old student dead at the scene of the shooting when they arrived just after 8 a.m.

"I'm distraught from all of it", student Greg Rodgers, 17, told NBC News.

In a statement the governor issued earlier, he said "this is a tremendous tragedy and speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities".

"Something you don't ever think you'd get", Ray said.

Some of the shooting victims were taken to Nashville, Tennessee's Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which is about 120 miles away. A 15-year-old female student was shot in Italy, Texas, and had to be taken to a Dallas hospital by helicopter.
