In an afternoon update, Kentucky governor Andy Beshear said one of his close friends died in the shooting and two other friends are in the hospital.
“Today, I’m hurt, and I am hurting,” Beshear said. “And I know so many people out there are as well. We lost four children of God today, one of whom was one of my closest friends. Tommy Elliot helped me build my law career, helped me become governor, gave me advice on being a good dad. He is one of the people I talk to most in the world, and very rarely were we talking about my job. He was an incredible friend.”
