"He just started firing," the witness said. "I didn't see his face. We were in the conference room. Whoever was next to me got shot, their blood's on me."

Andy Beshear said two of his close friends were killed in the shooting and another was injured. “I have a very close friend that didn’t make it today. And I have another close friend who didn’t, either,” he told reporters, choking up. “And one who’s at the hospital, that I hope is going to make it through.”
