Kentucky first responders say NJ woman may have prevented mass shooting


Kentucky first responders say a New Jersey woman, who received a racist Facebook message, may have prevented a mass shooting.

The woman, Koeberle Bull, says the message left her fearing for her kids. Eventually, she discovered the man lived in Kentucky and called police.

Police found 20-year-old Dylan Jarrell, pulling out of his driveway with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and a detailed plan of attack on two school districts.

“I would hope that someone would, in the same situation, just do the same thing. Because, obviously, you never know. It could be an idle threat, or it could be the next mass shooter that you’re stopping.  It’s our future. These kids are our future, my kids, the kids of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County, and we have to give them a fighting shot,” Bull said.

The mother said she had no way of knowing when she reported Jarrell that she wasn’t just protecting her own kids. She says she’s thankful police reacted quickly.
