It’s been one year since the shooting at Marshall County High School. It was 7:57 a.m. when then 15-year-old Gabe Parker allegedly opened fire on his classmates, killing two and injuring more than a dozen. Cloi Kennedy and Hailey Case were freshman at the time and witnessed the shooting. They've been best friends since the 6th grade. Taylor Inman speaks with Kennedy and Case about that day and how their lives have changed since. 

Marshall County Schools’ officials have alerted parents and students that the high school is hosting a first responder appreciation breakfast Wednesday morning and to not be alarmed by the sight of Lifeflight helicopters on the school’s campus.

Wednesday is the one-year anniversary of a shooting at the high school that claimed the lives of two students. School officials told parents in an email sent out Tuesday afternoon that the school is hosting the breakfast in the school’s cafeteria at 7:30 a.m.
