NJ Mom Who Thwarted Ky. School Shooting Appears On Ellen

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – The New Jersey mother who helped stop shootings at two Kentucky high schools appeared on ‘The Ellen Show” Tuesday.

Koeberle Bull alerted police in Lawrenceburg, Ky. after she received a disturbing, racially motivated message from Dylan Jarrell.

She says she got an uneasy feeling, she just couldn’t shake off.

“Something in the back of my mind was like, ‘do not let this go. This is your babies, do not let it go,’” said Bull.

That call led to Jarrell’s arrest, when investigators say they discovered credible threats made by Jarrell towards Anderson and Shelby County schools. KSP says he was arrested a few hundred feet from a car loaded with enough weapons and ammunition to carry out an attack.

KSP Trooper Satterly asked Bull and her family to come to Anderson County, Kentucky at the end of November for their annual Christmas parade. She accepted the invitation and is excited to visit Kentucky next month.

Degeneres also surprised the family with a week-long trip to Fiji.
