Part of Trump's tweet Wednesday afternoon read: "My thoughts and prayers are with Bailey Holt, Preston Cope, their families, and all of the wounded victims who are in recovery."

Holt, 15, was pronounced dead at the scene following Tuesday morning's rampage at Marshall County High School. Cope, also 15, was rushed to a hospital, where he later died.

Eighteen others were injured, most by gunfire. Several of those injured were not shot but were hurt during the chaos.

A 15-year-old shooter has been arrested and charged, and it has already been determined that he will be tried as an adult. His name has not yet been released.
