3 Fight for Lives After Washington School Shooting

MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) -

Three students fought for their lives in Seattle-area hospitals Sunday, days after being shot during an attack at a high school on Washington’s Puget Sound.

The close-knit community, meanwhile, on the nearby Tulalip Indian reservation struggled with the news that the shooter was a popular teenager from one of their more well-known families.

A tribal guidance counsellor said no one knows what prompted 14-year-old Jaylen Fryberg to walk into a busy school lunchroom and open fire Friday.

“We can’t answer that question,” said Matt Remle, who has an office at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. “But we try to make sense of the senselessness.”
