It is understood that there are many wounded and even though the shooter is reportedly in custody, parents are urged not to come near the school ground just yet

The local newspaper Marshall County Tribune-Courier stated: "Parents are being asked not to try and pick up students from Marshall County High School."

"We have been told there have been arguments between law enforcement and parents trying to get inside. The school remains on lockdown and no one is being allowed inside either entrance. Two Air Evac helicopters have landed in the past few minutes."
