BENTON, Ky.- A year ago Wednesday, tragedy struck at Marshall County High School.

Before the morning bell rang on Jan. 23, 2018, a gunman killed two people and injured several others.

Students also participated in several service projects today before school, such as serving breakfast to first responders and reading to elementary school students.

Extra counselors are on campus this week and next along with therapy dogs.

The suspected gunman’s next court date is scheduled for Feb. 1.
