Marshall County High School
A high school shooting has been reported at a high school in the town of Benton, Kentucky. Police scanner traffic indicates that the shooting was first reported at Marshall County High School around 8 a.m. on January 24. That same scanner traffic indicates that “four people are down” and that one weapon has been recovered. It’s unclear if a suspect is in custody.
A student at the school tweeted at 8:18 a.m., “Pray for Marshall County High School, I am a student there and we just had a school shooter, multiple students injured, please pray for us.” Medical air evacuation helicopters are en route to the school.
The town of Benton is located in the extreme south western part of Kentucky, close to the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
