Some of the children ran into classrooms to hide from the boy with the gun.Bailey Nicole Holt and Preston Ryan Cope, both 15, were killed and another 17 people injured when a classmate opened fire Tuesday morning in the school's busy atrium, a common area in the center of Marshall County High School, where several hallways meet and children gather before classes.The trauma consumed the rural town of about 4,300 people, where nearly everyone has a connection to the school. In the same room, two 16-year-olds, Lexie Waymon and Baleigh Culp, had been laughing and talking about makeup and the homecoming basketball game like ordinary teenagers on an ordinary morning."They was running and crying and screaming," said Mitchell Garland, who owns the cleaning company where the girl took refuge. He estimated between 50 and 100 students who ran from the school huddled there, including his own 16-year-old son.Inside the school, the boy kept firing, said Caporali, who ran into a classroom.Word of the shooting spread quickly around town, and people rushed toward the school.
