    It goes without saying but pray for us here in Marshall. These kids, staff and entire community need the BBN to be in constant prayer to help us through this. Tragic day but we will get through it.

    Thanks CommonMan and slang. My reply wouldn’t have made it through the moderator either.
    We definitely need prayers but if you don’t pray then put us in your thoughts.

    !4 injured by gunshot and 5 injured otherwise – most likely as students were frantically trying to get out of the school. 2 of the students injured by gunshot died. One at the scene and another at the hospital. Please remember all of the families affected in your prayers.
