Officials look at preparedness in wake of school shooting

The apparent killer is a 15-year-old student.

The school immediately went into lockdown, but some students had already fled the grounds.

His mother, Andrea, rushed to the hospital, bewildered as to why this happened. The student's stepsister allegedly defended him on Facebook, saying he was "not a monster" and that he was "bullied".

"I couldn't really focus driving home". "And that's not because I'm his mom".

"If you're a parent and you'd ever been through anything like this", said Teddy Phelps, "talking to your kid is one thing". She knew him as a quiet boy who played music and always seemed happy. His name and mugshot also will not be released. The carnage was especially hard on first responders.

In a statement released January 23 after the second shooting in two days, Cardinal DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said Christians experience the pain of the family and friends of the victims "as if it were our own".

At least five of the injured victims have been transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, about 120 miles away, a spokeswoman told CNBC.

He was in police custody on Tuesday afternoon. "Luckily, we're trained and prepared".

They were later bused to a neighboring school where parents could retrieve them, the Marshall County Tribune-Courier newspaper said.

"Together with the community, we will begin the long healing process within our schools".

"To walk in, the backpacks laying around, the phones laying around, going's indescribable", Marshall County Attorney Jeffrey Edwards said.

"This is a tremendous tragedy and speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities", Bevin said a statement.

Police have identified the two students killed as 15-year-old Baily Nicole Holt, who died at the school, and 15-year-old Preston Ryan Cope who died at the hospital.

This is America's first fatal school shooting of 2018.

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

A 16-year-old male suspect was apprehended, but no motive has been provided for that shooting either, leaving two communities reeling from violence and looking for answers.

Later in Tuesday evening, the outpouring of support that had been seen on social media became a reality as area churches sponsored prayer vigils.

Fourteen students were hit by gunfire, including the two who were killed, and five others suffered injuries in the ensuing chaos.
