2 dead, 17 wounded after shooting at Kentucky high school
Bailey died at the high school and Preston died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, CNN reported quoting State Police Commissioner Richard W. Sanders.
Justin Trudeau said in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon that he had reached out to Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin to offer condolences on behalf of all Canadians.
One of the students died at the scene and the other after being taken to a hospital.
The school is just a 30-minute drive from Heath High School, home of a 1997 mass shooting which killed three and injured five.
Just before class began Tuesday at Marshall County High School, Daniel Austin, a student known as "Dan the Man", was giving out high-fives, just as he does every day. They ranged in age from 15-18 years old. Another 15-year-old died later from his injuries. My staff in western Kentucky is at the high school and is in close contact with local officials.
"This is a wound that is going to take a long time to heal", Bevin said, "and for some in this community, will never fully heal".
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". The identities of the dead students have not been released. And teachers were grabbing kids up and helping them get into safe places. Authorities say the student pulled a gun and just started shooting.
"This is a tremendous tragedy and speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities", Governor Bevin said in a statement.
The school had active shooting training a few weeks ago and "students did exactly what they were trained to do", according to Sanders.
"He had to go over to convince himself it was not his daughter", he said. They were assisted by the Marshall County Sheriff's Office and the McCracken County Sheriff's Office. According to the press conference, the suspect was arrested at the school in a "non-violent" manner. Shaken students were bused to an area middle school to reunite with their loved ones.
