Text Message from the Shooter Lead Students to their Death

Marysville Pilchuck High School shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, shot 5 students and himself last Friday in Washington. New reports indicate that Fryberg lured fellow students via text message to the cafeteria to kill them.

According to CNN, “It’s our understanding he (invited them) via texting,” Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary said Monday.

Reports state that Freyberg had sent a picture message to his ex-girlfriend, where he showed himself holding a gun. Fryberg used a 40-caliber Beretta handgun when he approached the victims from behind who were sitting at one of the tables.

Two victims, Nate Hatch and Andrew Freyberg were cousins of the shooter. Hatch is in stable condition though Andrew is still in critical condition. Victims Zoe Galasso was declared dead at the scene along with Fryberg and Gia Soriano was removed form life support Sunday.

Fryberg was said to be a popular freshman amongst the school and was even crowned homecoming prince. He came from a respectable Tulalip Indian family.

Via CNN, Sophomore Alex Pietsch stated, “It’s weird to think about, because you see him and he is such a happy person. You never really see him be so angry and so upset. … It was just surprising to me that him, out of all people, would be the one.”

Police have not yet released a motive and no note has been found. Fellow students have offered several statements claiming that the incident was over a girl. Fryberg supposedly asked out his cousin’s girlfriend and was denied. Nate Hatch who is in recovery released a Tweet via Twitter forgiving his cousin for the horrific endeavor.
