Students are Rushed to a Nearby Community Center After Being Evacuated from the School

15 year-old Jaylen Fryberg, who had just returned to Marysville-Pilchuk High School from a suspension for fighting, shot 5 people, killing one, before fatally turning the gun on himself.  Fryberg, a Native American, had been suspended from the football team for fighting after reported “racist” comments.  He had also posted a series of angry Tweets recently, reportedly in connection to a girl who had rejected him.

The freshman went on a shooting spree with a .40 caliber Beretta handgun that allegedly belonged to his father.  Witnesses said he had a “blank stare” during the attacks.  Shocked classmates later said he was “popular” and a “well-respected, great guy.”
