Kentucky high school reopens days after shooting spree

Services for Bailey Holt and Preston Cope, the two students killed in the Marshall County High School shooting on Tuesday will be held this weekend.

With 11 shootings so far this year, United States schools once again find themselves vulnerable to spasms of gun violence that authorities seem powerless to prevent.

"We had 15 handsome years with her".

"She called me and all I could here was voices, chaos in the background", Secret said. "I can not believe this is happening, '" she said. "They have become much more common, and people seem to be not as shocked as the ones before".

"He was apprehended by the sheriff's department here on site, at the school, thankfully before any more lives could be taken", Webb said.

"This is not going to solve every problem but it increases the chances, it increases a kid's chances of surviving", West said.

The attack marked the year's first fatal school shooting, 23 days into 2018, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive, which relies on media reports and other information.

"Zero school shootings in Canada so far this year", tweeted Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, a gun control activist group, after the Kentucky shooting.

U.S. Rep. Jamie Comer, a Tompkinsville Republican who represents Marshall County in Congress, put out a statement calling the shooting horrifying. The 15-year-old had a court appearance Thursday. He will be charged with two counts of murder and multiple counts of attempted murder.

Five victims were airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Several others were injured. Their ages ranged from 14 to 18. As for their feelings toward the alleged student gunman who took their daughter's life, the family said they are praying for him no matter how hard that may be. The email told parents that they could attend the assembly with their children.

"Across the nation we've been listening to some advice and they think we need to get back to normalcy as quickly as possible", he explained. "Everyone was just screaming and crying and running and saying, 'Get down.' No one knew what to do". "Everyone in cars started turning around and driving away".

Police have not publicly identified the 15-year-old accused of opening fire Tuesday at Marshall County High School. Some schools have assigned police officers in schools, known as school resource officers, but state funding for them has been scant and whether to allow them to carry guns on school property is left up to local school boards. "I stand with the school, first responders and the entire Marshall County community, we are all united with you today".
