MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) In the wake of a deadly school shooting that happened in Western Kentucky, Marshall County High School has an added security precaution.

The Western Kentucky Star reports that Marshall County School District Officials confirm that staff started using metal detector wands on Tuesday. Students will be checked every day as they pass one of the school's four entrances. 

On January 23, two students were killed and 14 were wounded when a 15-year-old classmate opened fire before classes began. Seven other students were injured as they tried to flee. The 15-year-old student is being held on murder and assault charges.

In addition, last week, the school began requiring that all students have their bags, backpacks, and purses checked before entering the building.
