Marysville, Wash: The Marysville-Pilchuck High School 14-year-old student, Jaylen Fryberg, walked into his Seattle-area high school cafeteria on Friday and without yelling or talking, opened fire, killing one student and shooting four others in the head before turning the gun on himself.
When freshman student gunman opened fire at students in the school cafeteria in Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Friday, he was not shooting at random targets, but his relatives and friends. A student saw freshman Fryberg go up to a table in the cafeteria where the students where siting, ” he came up from behind … and fired about six bullets into the backs of them.”
“They were his friends, so it wasn’t just random.” The student went on to say, “we were sitting two tables away when the shooting began. “He (Fryberg) turned and looked at me and my girlfriend,” he said, “and kind of gave us a smirk.” He said he ducked under a table, too. Then the gunfire paused, and he looked out and saw the shooter was trying to reload. The shooter left the cafeteria and continued firing.
By the time the shooting was over, two people — the gunman and a female student — were dead and four were wounded, according to authorities. One female classmate was killed, police said. Her identity has not been released, as of yet. Fifteen-year-old Andrew Fryberg was shot in the head and remained in critical condition in intensive care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Saturday, a spokeswoman said. She went on to say that Nate Hatch, 14, was shot in the jaw and was in serious condition there.
