Comments are Off

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has declared this Sunday as a day of prayer for the entire state in the aftermath of the school shooting in Benton earlier this week. Bevin announced the proclamation during a community prayer event on Friday morning.

Marshall County High School students headed back to class Friday for the first time after Tuesday’s mass shooting. As of Saturday afternoon, one of the two students still receiving treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center was released. The final patient is in stable condition. According to Kentucky State Police, another student also remains hospitalized. It’s unclear where this victim is being treated.

During the rampage, 16 students were shot. Two of those students, 15-year-olds Bailey Holt and Preston Cope, died from their injuries. Seven others were injured in the incident but were not shot.

Kentucky State Police have finished processing the crime scene and have released the property back to the school district.

The mass shooting remains under investigation by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies
