NBC News reports that a teenage boy and a teenage girl were injured, a second boy was killed, when someone opened fire on them as they waited for their school bus Wednesday morning. NBC News notes that the girl’s injuries were not firearm-related.
WLKY notes that the attack occurred about 6:30 a.m. in Louisville’s Russell neighborhood.
