  • Hundreds Pack Church Pray After Italy School Shooting

A 15-year-old girl, later identified as Bailey Nicole Holt, died at the scene and a 15-year-old boy, later identified as Preston Ryan Cope, died at the hospital, Bevin said. Commissioner of Kentucky State Police Rick Sanders saying, "it's a tragic day for all of us".

One of the students died at the scene and the other after being taken to a hospital. It's orange and blue-the colors of Marshall County High School.

The suspect on Tuesday entered a common area at the school, pulled out a handgun and began firing at students, state police said in a statement.

The first shots were fired at 7:57 a.m., and the first 911 call was received at 7:59 a.m.

The high school is about 30 minutes from Heath High School in Paducah, where then-14-year-old Michael Carneal opened fire on December 1, 1997, killing three and injuring five.

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. It's good that the alleged shooter was caught, but it's so heartbreaking that yet another shooting has taken place in an American high school.

"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".

"We in law enforcement will do our job and do it well, and we will pray for the families that are affected by this today", Sanders said. "I saw the flashes from the gunshots and by that time I was just running".


There have been 13 school shootings - in California, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Washington state and New Mexico - this year. The identities of the dead students have not been released.

Police in the community about 50 miles south of Dallas, said the incident occurred in the Italy High School cafeteria.

"Something you don't ever think you'd get", Ray said.

"It just scared the hell out of me", Story said.

Back in 1997, three people were killed in a shooting at Heath High School in Paducah, which is about 30 minutes away from Benton.

Marshall County deputies arrested the gunman, who remains unidentified.

Marshall County High had 1,300 students in the 2014-2015 school year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
