Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin also attended a special event on Friday morning to support Marshall County community.

On Thursday, a juvenile court judge ordered to keep detaining the teenage shooter as prosecutors were gathering evidence to support trying him as an adult, said Assistant Marshall County Attorney Jason Darnall.

Prosecutors would recommend the suspect be charged with two counts of murder and 12 counts of 1st degree assault.
