H is for Hazard KY

Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC), located in Hazard, Kentucky, is one of 16 two-year, open-admissions colleges of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). (Wikipedia)

Jan. 15, 2013. 6 pm on a Tuesday.  Two people were killed and one teen was critically injured in a parking lot shooting at Hazard Community and Technical College.  The teen later died at the hospital.  A man with a semi automatic pistol shot into a car with one of the victims.  It appeared to be a domestic incident unrelated to the school. The school parking lot was a meeting place for the shooter to return his 2 year old son to his mother after a court ordered visit.  The 2 year old was uninjured in this incident.

The shooter had purchased (legally) a semi automatic gun just hours before.

 There is no Wikipedia entry for this shooting - I am using a local KY website.
