"It's two hours away, but they feel like neighbors", said Megan Mortis with Henderson Schools.

Kentucky State Police (KSP) is appealing to the media and the general public to allow privacy for families impacted by this week's tragic shooting in Marshall County. "Everyone was just screaming and crying and running and saying, 'Get down.' No one knew what to do".

Bailey died at Marshall County High School on Tuesday. Deputies took the student, who was in the principal's office, into custody and took him to the Massac County Sheriff's Office.

"It's horrifying that we can no longer call school shootings "unimaginable" because the reality is they happen with alarming frequency", said former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who survived being shot in the head in 2011. I heard someone hit the ground. The shooting occurred Tuesday.

Lexie Waymon, 16, said she and a friend were talking about the next basketball game, makeup and eyelashes when gunshots pierced the air. "The principal at North Marshall came and got me and took us outside and we got in a cop vehicle, and they took us to the fire department and told us what had happened". "I just knew I had to get to him". "Then I got up and I ran".

Holt's parents stood behind the governor on Friday while he asked every house of worship in the state to pray. "There was bullets flying everywhere".

"She called me, and all I could hear was voices, chaos in the background", Mrs. Holt told a local television station. "He still took my baby from me", she said.
