    Sorry, if it happened on campus, it in fact was "related to the school."
    ---
    Two people were taken into custody. Only one is believed to be the shooter.

    Officials say that this shooting was not related to the school.

    Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen believes that an argument “spilled over to the campus”

    HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - Authorities say a deadly shooting on the campus of Hazard Community and Technical College was likely a domestic situation that "just wound up in the parking lot of the community college."

    A man and woman were shot and killed and a female teen wounded in the shooting that police say involved a semi-automatic pistol.

    "We just don't know who they are at this time," Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen told reporters. But authorities do not believe those involved were students or connected to the college. Authorites believe the man killed was in his 50s and the woman killed was in her late 20s to early 30s.

    The chief says the injured teen was being taken to the University of Kentucky hospital.

    Two people were taken into custody but only one is believed to be the shooter, according to the chief.

    The injured teen was being taken to a Hazard hospital and then transported to the University of Kentucky hospital.

    Conor Duff, the college's evening coordinator, said the shootings happened about 4:30 p.m. at the campus 90 miles southeast of Lexington.

    Duff said police then went through the school's two buildings to ensure no one else was at risk.

    During the news conference, the college's president Steve Griner told reporters that all activities and classes at the college have been canceled for Wednesday so investigators work on the case.

    Some of my family went to school there. Strange, if unrelated to the school, how did it wind up there?

    Man charged in shooting that kills 2, injures 1 at Hazard Community and Technical College

    Engle said preliminary information indicated that Caitlin Cornett and Stidham had a child in common and had met in the parking lot of the college’s First Federal Center Building to exchange the child for visitation. The child was not injured and was in the custody of social services workers Tuesday night, Engle said.

    Allen said officers would likely be working at the scene until after midnight. He said they would probably get warrants to search several vehicles and a residence.

    13-year-old dies at hospital after deadly Hazard campus shooting


    Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen confirms to that Taylor Cornett, 13, has died from a deadly shooting on the campus of Hazard Community and Technical College, along with two others. Authorities say it was likely a domestic situation that "just wound up in the parking lot of the community college."

    Hazard Police tell us the other victims who were killed are Caitlin Cornett, 20, & Jackie Cornett, 53.

    We confirmed with Perry County Schools that a Taylor Cornett was a 6th grader at R.W. Combs Elementary School. Taylor Cornett was taken to UK Hospital after the shooting, where she later died.

    Police say the shooter, 21-year-old Dalton Stidham (who also goes by Dalton Miller) turned himself in after the shooting. Officers tell us Stidham used a semi-automatic pistol in the shooting. Stidham is charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. Police say a second suspect was also taken into custody, but only Stidham is believed to be the shooter.

    According to the arrest citation, Stidham admitting that he "snapped" and shot three people. The gun recovered from the scene matched the description of the murder weapon that Stidham claimed he used and had purchased earlier that day.

    Authorities say the incident was in no way connected to the college, other than the fact that it occurred in the parking lot.

    Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen says the first calls about the shooting came in just before six Tuesday night. Allen said when police arrived, they found a vehicle in the middle of the Community College parking lot. Allen said one victim was found dead in the driver's seat of the car, the other was found laying outside the car. The juvenile victim was found in the vehicle's backseat. As the scene unfolded the school was immediately put on lockdown.

    Victim's basketball coach releases statement
    HAZARD, Ky (WYMT-TV) --- Police have confirmed that Taylor Cornett, a victim of a shooting at Hazard Community and Technical College, died at UK Hospital at 3:47PM.

    Taylor played basketball for R.W. Combs Elementary in Perry County and also practiced with the Perry County Central High School.

    Perry Central Girls Basketball Coach Randy Napier has released the following statement.

    "Our school and our community are all heartbroken over the loss of Taylor Cornett. Taylor will always be remembered as a part of the Lady Commodore family. I feel honored to have been one of her coaches if only for a short time. She was a very talented child with a very bright future in basketball. To have her life cut short at such a young age and in such a senseless manner is difficult for all of us to handle. My team and coaches along with her grade school team, the RW Combs Lady Mustangs and Coach Larry Caudill are all devastated by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Taylors family. Please pray for us all"

    A prayer service will be held in honor of the victims, first responders and everyone affected by the shooting at Petrey Memorial Baptist at 7:00 PM Wednesday.

Our thoughts continue to be with all of the victims’ families and loved ones.

    Stidham filed a similar custody action against Caitlin Cornett, according to court records, and the cases were eventually consolidated. They were set to meet for a hearing on motions in the case on Monday of this week.

    According to an order tendered in the Perry Circuit Clerk’s Office on Monday, Stidham was to have custody of the child from Sunday until Tuesday evening of each week, at which time the two were ordered to meet at Hazard Community and Technical College to exchange the child for visitation.

    Custody exchanges should be made at the sheriff's office. Much safer!

    I've been following this since shortly after it happened. Watching Taylor's friends posting on facebook was heartbreaking! My daughter was the same age when her friend was murdered. Thank goodness facebook wasn't around then. I hope that her friends get professional help dealing with their grief because they are going to need it!
