Kentucky State Police Lt. Michael Webb said the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting police as they process the scene at the high school.

Investigators in western Kentucky on Wednesday were probing why a 15-year-old boy opened fire in a rural high school, killing two students and injuring 18 others in the latest in a series of deadly shootings in American schools.

The deceased victims were named as Bailey Nicole Holt and Preston Ryan Cope by by Sanders in a press briefing at 6pm local time.

"The shooter was a student, a 15-year-old male", he added.

"They was running and crying and screaming", Garland told The Associated Press (AP). "We started to take off. Kids were scrambling over other kids, and it was terrible", Brian said.

Sanders said that the girl died on the scene, while the boy died in a hospital.

Almost 100 children ran out of Marshall County High School seeking safety, said Mitchell Garland, who rushed outside of his business when he heard about the shooting.

A business owner says he saw almost 100 students running out of a Kentucky high school seeking safety from a deadly shooting. "And for some in this community, will never fully heal", Gov. Matt Bevin said Tuesday. The wounded have been treated at a nearby hospital, and details about who they were or how badly they were hurt were not immediately available.

"This morning's senseless and evil attack in Marshall County is news that horrifies us all. I don't think anything can say one bad thing about him", Andrea Austin said. I've got another male. "I just heard it and then I just, everything was black for a good minute. I just want to see him". "I asked my friend what was going on and he told me that there was a school shooting".

"My first thought was to run away and get to cover or something", Holder said.

"Our hearts are with the entire community in Marshall County and our gratitude is with the first responders who rushed into harm's way".

Among the patients was the 15-year-old boy who did not survive; he was shot in the head, doctors said.
