Witnesses Describe Chaos During Kentucky School Shooting

Bevin said the shooter is a 15-year old male student and is now in police custody.

The slain victims were a boy and a girl, both 15, state police said. The second fatality, a 15-year-old boy, died after being transported to a hospital. "I stand with the school, first responders and the entire Marshall County community, we are all united with you today".

A Marshall County deputy apprehended the shooter, police said, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was called to the scene.

Police responded to the shooting around 8:00 a.m. local time and the scene was secured. A Preston Ryan Cope died at a hospital. "And helping them get outside and get to a safe location", Green said.

The shooter is said to be a 15-year-old male.

Many are turning to each other and their faith to get through the mass shooting that shook the commonwealth of Kentucky.


"It is unbelievable that this would happen in a small, close-knit community like Marshall County", he said in a later statement, according to Kentucky.com.

"We still have five students in critical condition", Sanders told media on the condition of the injured people. The state police's initial Twitter alert reported "multiple victims, one of which has been pronounced dead". "They was just kids running down the highway". Authorities are working to gather information about the suspect; they have not disclosed whether they have determined a motive for the shooting.

"I was sitting in the library and there is a Plexiglas wall behind me", a Marshall County student explained.

"Our hearts go out to Kentuckians, and to all those affected by this tragedy", Trudeau said in the tweet.

"They was running and crying and screaming", he told The Associated Press. The suspect, also a student, is in custody. In 1997, a 14-year-old killed three people and injured five more during a prayer circle at Heath High School, located 35 miles away from Benton in the town of West Paducah. The suspect in the incident at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, has been apprehended, according to officials with Marshall County Emergency Management.
