STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The teenager accused of last week's Kentucky school shooting used to live in the Golden Triangle.
The Starkville Daily News reports the 15-year-old boy's mother worked as an editor for that newspaper as well as for the Daily Times Leader in West Point.
WTVA is not naming the suspect or his mother at this time since the case is being handled in juvenile court in Kentucky, which is common practice for many news outlets. That may change, especially if the teen is charged as an adult in the shooting. For the moment, he is being held on murder and assault charges.
Those who worked with the boy's mother say her son occasionally would hang out at the newspaper but wouldn't say a whole lot.
Two students died in the shooting last Tuesday at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky. Police say 14 students were wounded by gunfire and seven others suffered other injuries when the boy opened fire before classes began.
