2 Students Killed In Kentucky High School Shooting, 17 Others Injured: Report

Two high school students are confirmed dead and 17 others wounded after a shooter opened fire Tuesday morning at Kentucky High School, authorities said. A 15-year-old male student was arrested at the scene and will be charged with murder and attempted murder, Bevin said.

Marshall County High School turned into a scene of carnage, Gov. Matt Bevin said at a news conference. The slain victims were a boy and a girl, both 15 years old. The girl died at the scene and the boy died at a hospital, according to Kentucky State Police Commissioner Richard W.

The violence in Marshall County, a rural area near the western tip of Kentucky, stunned the governor. Authorities have not provided a possible motive.

“It is unbelievable that this would happen in a small, close-knit community like Marshall County,” Bevin said in a statement. “This is a tremendous tragedy and speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities.

The attack in Kentucky also came a day after a school shooting in Texas.

On Monday, a 15-year-old female student was shot in the city of Italy, officials said. She was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Dallas.
The suspect, a 16-year-old male, was “apprehended within minutes,” city officials said.

The motive for that shooting also remains unclear.

What is clear is that Mass shootings in America are a serious problem and Americans must stand up, proclaim that “we’ve had enough” and vote every gun nut lawmakers out of Congress.
