Andrew Fryberg, last hospitalized student wounded in Washington school shooting, dies

Andrew Fryberg, 15, died on Friday at Harborview Medical Center, in Seattle, The Associated Press reports. Fryberg's death brings the total number of fatalities in October's Washington state high school shooting to five.

Andrew Fryberg, along with Zoe Galasso, 14, Gia Soriano, 14, and Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, all died from injuries sustained when fellow student Jaylen Fryberg opened fire on the lunch table they were sitting at. Jaylen Fryberg died of a self-inflicted wound. Another student who was sitting at the lunch table, 14-year-old Nate Hatch, was released from the hospital on Thursday.

Marysville-Pilchuck High School reopened on Monday, although the cafeteria where the shootings occurred remains closed. A county sheriff said officials are conducting an investigation which could take months.

"The question everybody wants is, 'Why?,'" Sheriff Ty Trenary said. "I don't know that the 'why' is something we can provide."
