CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - The track team from Marshall High, a Kentucky high school where a deadly shooting happened, got a warm welcome at a Tennessee restaurant.

The manager at an Olive Garden in Chattanooga decided to cover the team's food bill when he found out they were from Marshall County High School. Two students were killed and many injured in a shooting at the school in January.

The Tennessean reports the restaurant's manager called his boss in Atlanta, who gave the okay to waive the cost of the meal, which totaled $789.26.

Marshall track coach Nathan Bazzell said two of the team's athletes were wounded by bullets in the shooting on Jan. 23. One of the shooting victims is back competing with the team and was on the trip to Chattanooga.
