Hospital: Teen wounded in school shooting dies
MARYSVILLE, WA - One of the teenagers wounded in a Washington state high school shooting has died, raising the number of fatalities from when a student opened fire in a cafeteria to three.
Officials at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett said 14-year-old Gia Soriano died Sunday night. Another girl was killed during the shooting Friday by a popular freshman at Marysville-Pilchuck High School north of Seattle. The shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, died of a self-inflicted wound.
Three other students remain hospitalized, two in critical condition and one in serious condition.
Parents and students gathered in a gymnasium at the school Sunday afternoon for a community meeting, with speakers urging support and prayers and tribal members playing drums and singing songs. Fryberg was from a prominent Tulalip Indian family.
