15-Year-Old Kentucky School Shooting Victim Bailey Holt Made Final Call to Mom Before She Died

The mother of a 15-year-old girl killed in Tuesday’s shooting at a Kentucky high school received a harrowing call from her daughter before she died, WKRN reports.

Bailey Holt was killed Tuesday along with 15-year-old classmate Preston Cope when another student, who was also 15, opened fire at Marshall County High School.

At least 18 others were injured in the shooting. Bailey’s boyfriend was among the kids shot.

Bailey’s mother, Secret Holt, told WKRN that Bailey called her when the shooting began.

“She called me and all I could hear was voices, chaos in the background,” she said. “She couldn’t say anything and I tried to call her name over and over and over and she never responded.”

Holt said she and her husband Jason rushed to the school but police would not let them in.

They waited for Bailey to exit one of the buses that were transporting students to an evacuation center but she never arrived.

“We waited and waited,” Holt said. “The principal at North Marshall came and got me, and took us outside and we got in a cop car and they took us to the fire department and told us what had happened.”

“She was an angel here on earth,” Jason Holt said. “She was a perfect angel. She loved everyone. She never had a harsh word to say about anything or anyone.”

The teen shooter has been charged with two counts of murder and 12 counts of assault.
