School Shooter Targeted Own Cousins


The gunman who killed one girl and shot four other students before taking his own life inside a high-school cafeteria north of Seattle does not appear to have chosen his targets at random — two of the victims are his cousins, relatives said.

Government officials identified the gunman in Friday's shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School as Jaylen Fryberg, a well-liked freshman and homecoming prince.

Two of the victims —15-year-old Andrew Fryberg and 14-year-old Nate Hatch — areJaylen Fryberg's cousins. Two other unidentified girls were also wounded.
