This is terrible
On Sunday night, 14-year-old Gia Soriano died in the hospital after being shot in the head Friday afternoon at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, north of Seattle. Another, unidentified girl was killed immediately when freshman Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in the cafeteria; Fryberg died at the scene of self-inflicted wounds, police say.
"We are devastated by this senseless tragedy," Soriano's family said in a statement. "Gia is our beautiful daughter and words cannot express how much we will miss her.... We ask that you please respect our privacy and give us the space and time we need to grieve and spend time together as a family in memory of Gia."
Freyberg hit three other people in his attack. Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, was also shot in the head and remains in critical condition at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. The other two surviving victims — Nate Hatch, 14, and Andrew Fryberg, 15 — are being treated at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center. Andrew Fryberg and Hatch are cousins of Jaylen Fryberg. There is no known motive for the shooting.
