Kentucky incident was America's 11th school shooting of 2018

Police confirmed the suspected gunman is a 15-year-old student.

Today there will be sheriff's deputies at all county schools to assist the resource officers. The victim had to be airlifted to a hospital. Fourteen of the victims were male and six were female. At least two students were fatally shot, while 20 others were injured. Five were flown about 120 miles ( 193 kilometers) to Nashville, Tennessee's Vanderbilt University Medical Center, spokeswoman Tavia Smith said. The fifth was in stable condition. The fourth patient is listed in critical but stable condition.

Three students who were transported to Lourdes Hospital in Paducah have been released. She was discharged on Wednesday.

There are four remaining patients at Vanderbilt, who are expected to survive, doctors said. Some of them could undergo surgery on Wednesday. It just takes time. Gov. Matt Bevin rushed from the Capitol to the scene. The first 911 call was received at 7:59 a.m.

Trump also tweeted about the lost text messages of two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents.

And it's a school of about 1,400 students.

"Across the nation, we've been listening to some advice, and they think we need to get back to normalcy as quickly as possible", he explained.

Nursing student at Louisiana Technical College kills two classmates and herself in a classroom.

Ethan Derevage, 15, was also in the commons room when shots rang out.

"Teachers love him", his mother said. "And I see this kid draw up his gun and he just points it", he recalled to Good Morning America. "He had been shot and he was surrounded by some teachers, and they didn't know what to do, so I put him in my auto as fast as I could", Tristan told "CBS This Morning". The four students were injured while trying to escape the scene. "Some may not ever recover", Donohoo said.

Especially if you're a parent or grandparent of school-age children.

Dr. Brian Doss has a dental practice near the school.

Hannah Lyles and Sydney Ellegood were in the parking lot, on their way into the building for class, when students began rushing out.

A student at Santana High School kills two students, wounds 13. "Everyone is just scared". And they did great.

"Everyone was so proud to be a Marshall County Marshall, and still to this day I'm proud to be an alumni".

The teen has been appointed an attorney and is being held at a regional juvenile jail in Paducah, Kentucky, a town that has had its own experience with a mass school shooting.

"It's horrifying", Giffords said, "that we can no longer call school shootings "unimaginable" because the reality is they happen with alarming frequency".

Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders said authorities would not yet identify a 15-year-old in police custody who is alleged to have walked into the school armed with a pistol just before 8am before opening fire.

Bevin said earlier in a statement, "This is a tremendous tragedy and speaks to the heartbreak present in our communities". "How in our world, can our small community be going through this?"

Such incidents would make headlines in most other developed countries, but in the United States they often get little national attention.
