Some high school kid shot another high school kid. Stop being a drama queen like it was some organized assault on an unwitting student body. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 29 days ago -

Geesh, Vor, Lol. Such bitterness. Towards no one who had anything to do with it. Smh 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 29 days ago -

15 YO in custody. It does appear our kids are going astray?

BENTON, KY. (AP) - A 15-year-old student opened fire with a handgun inside his rural Kentucky high school Tuesday, killing two classmates, injuring 17 others and sending hundreds fleeing for safety.
Police were seen leading a teenager away in handcuffs. It was the nation's first fatal school shooting of 2018.
The shooter will be charged with murder and attempted murder, Kentucky State Police Lt. Michael Webb said.
"He was apprehended by the sheriff's department here on site, at the school, thankfully before any more lives could be taken," Webb said.
Police did not release any identities, nor did they describe a motive. Webb said detectives are looking into his home and background.
Students ran for their lives as the student began shooting inside an atrium just before morning classes would have begun at Marshall County High School. Many jumped into cars or ran down the highway, some not stopping until they reached a McDonald's restaurant more than a mile away. Parents left their cars on both sides of an adjacent road, desperately trying to find their teenagers.
"They was running and crying and screaming," said Mitchell Garland, who provided shelter to between 50 and 100 students inside his nearby business. "They was just kids running down the highway. They were trying to get out of there."

A half-dozen ambulances and numerous police cars converged on the school, along with officers in black fatigues carrying assault rifles. Federal authorities responded, and Sen. Mitch McConnell sent staffers. Gov. Matt Bevin rushed from the Capitol to the scene.
Two 15-year-olds were killed: A girl died at the scene, and a boy died later at a hospital, the governor said, adding that all of the victims are believed to be students. He said 15 of those injured suffered bullet wounds. Five were flown about 120 miles (193 kilometers) to Nashville, Tennessee's Vanderbilt University Medical Center, spokeswoman Tavia Smith said.
Vanderbilt doctor Oscar Guillamondegui described the 15-year-old boy's injury as a "non-survivable gunshot wound to the brain." In total, Vanderbilt received five patients from the scene, three of which had gunshot wounds to the head. Doctors say the remaining patients have "fairly minor" injuries and should recover. "This is a wound that is going to take a long time to heal," Bevin said.
The attack marked the year's first fatal school shooting, 23 days into 2018, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive, which relies on media reports and other information. The anti-violence group Everytown for Gun Safety has counted at least 283 shootings at schools since 2013.
Bevin said earlier in a statement that "It is unbelievable that this would happen in a small, close-knit community like Marshall County."Marshall County High School is about 30 minutes from Heath High School in Paducah, Kentucky, where a 1997 mass shooting killed three and injured five. Michael Carneal, then 14, opened fire there about two years before the fatal attack at Columbine High School in Colorado, ushering in an era when mass school shootings have become much more common.
Meanwhile, in the small North Texas town of Italy, a 15-year-old girl was recovering Tuesday after police said she was shot by a 16-year-old classmate in her high school cafeteria on Monday, sending dozens of students scrambling for safety.
Tuesday's shooting happened as students gathered in a common area, just before the day's first classes. Sixteen-year-old Lexie Waymon said she and a friend were talking about the next basketball game, makeup and eyelashes when gunshots pierced the air."I blacked out. I couldn't move. I got up and I tried to run, but I fell. I heard someone hit the ground. It was so close to me," Waymon said. "I just heard it and then I just, everything was black for a good minute. Like, I could not see anything. I just froze and did not know what to do. Then I got up and I ran."Waymon did not stop running, not even when she called her mom to tell her what happened. She made it to the McDonald's, her chest hurting, struggling to breathe. "All I could keep thinking was, 'I can't believe this is happening. I cannot believe this is happening,'" she said.
It was chaotic outside the school as parents and students rushed around trying to find each other, said Dusty Kornbacher, who owns a nearby floral shop. "All the parking lots were full with parents and kids hugging each other and crying and nobody really knowing what was going on," he said.
Barry Mann said his 14-year-old son was put on a bus and taken to another school to be picked up.
"He gave me a call as soon as he run out the door and I didn't know what was happening to him," he told the AP. "It sounded like his heart was in his throat."
Garland said his son, a 16-year-old sophomore, jumped into someone's car and sped away before joining others inside his business.
"Everyone is just scared. Just terrified for their kids," Garland said. "We're a small town and we know a lot of the kids."

Oh, please! VOR is nothing but a pot stirrer- you should feel like an idiot for giving her any credibility! LOL! you've gone from an intelligent poster to a troll- shame on you- 

fuzz81 --- 29 days ago -

You should feel like an idiot for deflecting from the fact that they?re right. Silence from the texans after 2 killed and 17 injured. 

fuzz81 --- 29 days ago -

Pot stirrers and trolls oh my 

DVaz --- 29 days ago -

We're SSRI's involved is my question. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 29 days ago -

fuzz, you know better- both sides are responsible, but VOR is one of the worst- she only posts to attack people, and you're only defending her because she's a lib- SMH. Suffice it to say she understands (and defends) markie's posts- we're talking IQ's under 100's- you sure you want to go there? There has to be a way to have an intelligent conversation, if not, let's talk about recipes- 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 29 days ago -

we're talking IQ's under 100's-

Now you've made it personal with fuzzball. 

the Markster --- 29 days ago -

another school shooting
Yall know where I am on guns. Now lets talk about what a "responsible gun owner" is and is not.

VOR is one of the worst- she only posts to attack people, and you're only defending her because she's a lib- SMH. Suffice it to say she understands (and defends) markie's posts- we're talking IQ's under 100's-

Silly old dragon. Not yet tired of being off topic and attacking posters whom you don't like or cant agree with?
Still stumbling aimlessly. When will you learn? You have no fingers to push any of my buttons. Your off topic pointless attacks = something souploops would say. 

the Markster --- 29 days ago -

Good news for me...Ive lost 30 lbs with out even trying 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 29 days ago -

Who is sending that message? 

the Markster --- 29 days ago -

Who is sending that message?

Video games, TV, movies, My guess 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 29 days ago -

I tend to agree with that. The entertainment industry is a cesspool. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 29 days ago -

In other words: Liberal Hollywood 

the Markster --- 29 days ago -

Its been reported that so far there have been (11) Eleven school shootings this year. Im thinking we seriously need a conversation with our Congress about guns. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 29 days ago -

Im thinking we seriously need a conversation with our Congress about guns.

Its not Congress Mark, its the second ammendment. 

Sharticus --- 29 days ago -

Don't forget the liberal rappers that sing about killing Trump and just about everyone else. 

Joe Blow --- 29 days ago -

Geesh, Vor, Lol. Such bitterness. Towards no one who had anything to do with it. Smh 



It's no wonder VOR is bitter that America is ceasing to even talk about school shootings anymore. Are you even aware that there is one every other day in America?

One in Dallas the other day and another in Louisiana. Now one in Kentucky. Gee Whiz, what do these three states have in common????

LMFAO at the callousness of the self righteous 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

Its not Congress Mark, its the second ammendment.

It is Congress,bob. They pass laws. Constitutional amendments and what not at state and federal levels. 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

Its so sad. But until someone on KU has to deal with that kind of tragedy, it looks like nothing will change. Im sure its just a matter of time 

Joe Blow --- 28 days ago -

ts so sad. But until someone on KU has to deal with that kind of tragedy, it looks like nothing will change. Im sure its just a matter of time?



That will only change the mind of that one person who will only become tragically hip after their own loss.

Really only one holds that title, and it isn't joey- if there's a medal for dumbest, marky takes the gold! LOL!!!! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 28 days ago -

Mark, please go read article V of the Constitution. Better yet, read the entire document. 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

Such bitterness.
A silly-bitter old dragon.
Did I mention I lost 30 lbs? With out even trying! For an old man I look pretty good. 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

Mark, please go read article V of the Constitution. Better yet, read the entire document.

No. Congress made gun laws as they are, they have been repealed before and they can be repealed again. Im referring to Automatic weapons, bump stops and such. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 28 days ago -

Automatics are already illegal unles you have an FFL. Bump stocks add nothing to a semi automatic. 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

Bump stocks add nothing to a semi automatic.

Im not buying that. Eleven school shootings in 2018 already. We need some gun laws. I still like the idea of gun owners being made to have insurance in the event ones gun kills or maims. Just like car insurance. 

the Markster --- 28 days ago -

 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 28 days ago -

We already have numerous gun laws.
