Accused school shooter's trial to have Hamilton Co. jury

A jury from Hamilton County will determine the fate of the accused Campbell County school shooter.

Kenneth Bartley was 14-years-old when prosecutors said he took a gun to Campbell County High School in 2005. He was confronted in the office by three school administrators. Vice Principal Ken Bruce was fatally shot. Two others, Principal Ken Seale and Vice Principal Jim Pierce were shot but survived.
