Police later identified the two 15-year-old victims as Bailey Nicole Holt, who died at the scene, and Preston Ryan Cope, who died at an area hospital. They are "looking into his home" life and other details about him, Kentucky State Police Lt. Michael Webb said.

One of the victims died at the scene and the other after being taken to a hospital.

The incident began at 7:57 a.m. when a 15-year-old student armed with a handgun entered the school and started shooting. That student was a 15-year-old female. I seen my good friends, they got shot.

The school shooting comes just one day after a 16-year-old boy in Texas allegedly shot and injured a 15-year-old girl in a high school cafeteria.

Many are turning to each other and their faith to get through the mass shooting that shook the commonwealth of Kentucky.

Bevin later released a statement, during which he expressed his disbelief that such a "tremendous tragedy" could take place in a "small, close-knit community like Marshall County".

The star revealed a year ago how she had been battling depression and mental health problems and even attempted suicide in 2013. Mr Parry said he only realised O'Riordan had composed the song in memory of the event in Warrington after learning of her death.

Speaking on the floor of the U.S. Senate, McConnell says his staff in western Kentucky is at Marshall County High School and is in close contact with local officials. He would not confirm the identity of the shooter or the status of any of the victims. "Just terrified for their kids", Mr Garland said.

Junior Greg Rodgers told NBC News that when he arrived at school he saw students racing out of the building.

"To walk in, the backpacks laying around, the phones laying around, going off ... it's indescribable", said Edwards.

Another officer reports that he is on the back side of the high school with the Marshall County Sheriff, and they have found a Ruger pistol that they are collecting. The school is located roughly 120 miles northwest of Nashville, Tennessee. Sanders said the first 911 call came in two minutes later, and police were on scene by 8:06 a.m.

The school is about 35 miles southeast of Heath High School in West Paducah, where 14-year-old Michael Carneal opened fire on a group of praying students, killing three and injuring five more on December 1, 1997.
