Shooting in Kentucky College

shooting incident 300VERSAILLES, Ky. (1/15/13) – Tonight at approximately 5:56 p.m. police were called to a shooting on the Community College Drive Campus of Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) in Eastern Kentucky.  Police have confirmed two people were killed and a third person was injured.  

“Our thoughts and sympathy are with the families of the victims of this tragedy,” said HCTC President Steve Greiner. “We are cooperating fully with the authorities and they have shared with us they do not believe the college was specifically targeted.  Fortunately our staff was prepared and responded quickly to secure our campus buildings to limit the impact of this shooting.  I am pleased with their response and I want to assure our students, staff and the community we will do all we can to maintain the safety and security of our college.”

The Community College Drive (Highway 15) Campus will be closed Wednesday, January 16 as police continue their investigation of this shooting and the college community begins to heal from this tragedy.  All other HCTC campuses will be open.

Any inquiries related to the identities of those involved should be directed to police.  At this time it does not appear the victims or suspects were students or employees of HCTC.
