Accused killer remains on the loose

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning on the man gunned down inside a Lexington middle school Tuesday morning. The Fayette County coroner's office revealed Tuesday night that 38-year old Jose Daniel Donato was shot several times.

An all-out search continues for the suspected gunman, 27-year-old Brian Allen McGuire. He was a custodian at Leestown Middle School, where the shooting took place. Donato also worked at the school as a custodian.

Police say the two had a history of conflict.

Police say McGuire should be considered armed and dangerous. He may be driving a beige 2006 Suzuki Gran Vitara bearing KY registration 769-FVB.

Because of the shooting, school officials are in the process of changing the locks at the school.

All schools in the county were placed on lock-down Tuesday. All Fayette County Schools and Lexington Parks and Recreation ESP programs for Wednesday have been canceled.

There were also police on site at Fayette County's Central Office, on Main Street, Tuesday. Those officers may be back Wednesday morning to ensure school leader's safety.
