Shooting At Washington School Leaves 2 Dead, Including Gunman

 

A student entered the cafeteria of a Marysville, Wash., high school and opened fire, killing one, injuring four, before turning the gun on himself, police said on Friday.

Television images showed students running out of Marysville-Pilchuck High School with their hands up, while police moved room to room with guns drawn.

During televised press conferences, Marysville Police Commander Robb Lamoureux said the shooter was a student of the school and he did not know whether the second person killed was a student or a teacher.

Providence Hospital in Everett, Washington said it had received four "young people" at its hospital; three of them are in critical condition.
