Three students remain in critical condition.
The shooter, a 15-year-old male student, is expected to be charged with two counts of murder and several counts of attempted murder.
All Marshall County Schools are closed Wednesday.
A GoFundMe has been set up for the victims of the shooting. Noah Steele, a 2013 graduate of Marshall County High School, and his fellow former classmate Eric Harrison created the account.
Steele says that so far the GoFundMe has raised more than $1,000 and they plan to give it to a school officer to have them disperse the money to who needs it.
