A 15-year-old boy opened fire at a Kentucky high school Tuesday, killing at least two students and injuring 19 more, Gov. Matt Bevin said during a press conference. Authorities have not yet determined the shooter's motive, but police said officers apprehended him at the scene and he remains in custody. The injured victims were transported to local hospitals, where 14 of the students were treated for gunshot wounds. Both of the students killed, one male and one female, were 15 years old.
Marshall County High School, about 200 miles southwest of Louisville, was locked down while police investigated.
