Joppa student arrested after high school threat

People attend a vigil Thursday at Mike Miller County Park in Benton, Ky. By 8:06 a.m., first responders started arriving at the high school.

The legislation from state Sen. After an initial series of hearings in juvenile court, which is closed to the public and the records sealed under Kentucky law, the case will be presented to a grand jury that next meets on February 13.

"I'm going to be beating the drum again".

"There are people who do not understand and do not believe in the things we're talking about right now", he said.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin called on Americans Friday to "wake up" and recognize that school shootings are a "cultural problem".

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.

Kentucky State Police reported that 18 others were wounded in the attack, a lot of them from gunshots. "The principal at North Marshall came and got me and took us outside and we got in a cop auto, and they took us to the fire department and told us what had happened".

"I know when he called me, he said, 'Mom there's been a shooting.' And I asked if him if he was OK, and he said, 'I'm running, '" she said.




That no single action will end all gun violence is no reason for inaction, indeed paralysis.

This is not an affront to the Second Amendment, but an assertion of reason, political will, societal self-respect, and the desire to save young lives. If the gun was obtained at the child's house, what about holding the parents responsible for not keeping the gun securely locked? "Enable them to live and go on through this". "Regardless, we had a child shooting children".

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.

Some say armed school officers are needed. We need to tighten registration and waiting periods on others. He was later arrested on school grounds.

"Anytime a law enforcement officer, a sworn officer of the law, is present, we recommend that he or she be armed", said Jon Akers, executive director of the Kentucky Center for School Safety, which provides training for local school districts.

Back in November, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office hosted active shooter training for residents. Bevin called then on the power of prayer to help combat Louisville's rising murder rate, and urged people to form prayer groups to walk high-crime neighborhoods.

"Be mindful of what is listened to".

"There really are no answers to the questions that are in our minds", he said. "Our culture is crumbling from within and the cost of it is high".
