Attack Reported at Marshall County High School in Benton

23 January 2018

It happened Tuesday morning at Marshall County High School in Benton, near the Land Between the Lakes. Shook says police came to talk to the class.

The injured girl, whose name was not released, was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. She said she was angry when she learned who the suspect was because she'd complained about the boy at least twice to school officials, including to a vice principal.

Edge says a possible motive is unclear.

Investigators have said they don't know the relationship between the victim and shooter, or what may have been the shooter's motive.

While the Senate easily approved the bill earlier in the day, most House Democrats voted against the continuing resolution. The upper chamber was expected to pass the measure Monday afternoon, then send it to the House for quick approval.

The Ellis County Sheriff's Department will lead the investigation of the shooting.

He said he had no information on her condition. The school was placed on lockdown and emergency responders are already on scene.

This item has been corrected to show the sheriff's official is named Sgt. Joe Fitzgerald, not Sgt. Joe Fitz Fitzgerald.

A shooting suspect was reported in custody. He confirmed the shooter is in custody. Additional details were not immediately available.
