Police are at two deadly shooting scenes that leave five people, including the suspected gunman, dead in Johnson County.

Officials with Kentucky State Police said the shooting was reported around 3:40 p.m. Saturday.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office said deputies found two people dead in the kitchen of a home off McKenzie Branch Road. Deputies said they could not find the suspect, but later received a tip that his vehicle was on Mill Street in Paintsville. Deputies said two additional victims, along with the suspect identified as Joseph Nickell, were found dead inside an apartment. Police said Nickell took his own life after committing the murders.

This is one of the most disturbing acts of violence I have ever seen."

The Florida School Shooting Was the 18th School Shooting of the Year. And It's Only February .
Wednesday’s school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., was the 18th school shooting of 2018 — a year that’s not even two months old. While many of these incidents — including the most recent before Wednesday’s shooting, one on Feb. 8 at New York City’s Metropolitan High School — did not result in any fatalities or injuries, schools nationwide have been rocked by gun violence in recent days. There have been school shootings in 13 states so far this year, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a non-profit that advocates for gun control. Texas, California and Michigan have each seen at least two school shootings. On Jan. 23 in Kentucky, a 15-year-old student killed two of his peers and injured almost two dozen others. Just the day before, a 15-year-old girl was wounded in a shooting in Texas. At least 14 people were injured in the shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s office. Florida Sen. Bill Nelson told MSNBC he had gotten word of “a number of fatalities” from the school superintendent. A suspect in the Florida shooting has been identified as Nicolas Cruz, the Associated Press reports. A suspect, who is not a current student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, has been taken into custody, according to the sheriff’s office. President Donald Trump offered “prayers and condolences” in the wake of the Florida shooting, tweeting that “no child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.
