The fourth victim shot by a classmate at Marysville-Pilchuck High School has died at Harborview Medical Center.
Andrew Fryberg, 15, died Friday night. He had been in critical condition in the intensive-care unit at Harborview Medical Center since the day of the shooting.
Andrew Fryberg, 15, is the fifth student to die, including Jaylen Fryberg, who shot his friends Oct. 24 in the school cafeteria before fatally shooting himself. Zoe Galasso, 14, died in the shooting. Gia Soriano, 14, and Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, died later at Everett’s Providence Regional Medical Center.
After his death, Andrew Fryberg’s family issued the following statement:
“We express our thanks for the amazing support from the community, as well as from everyone around the world that have been praying for us all through this tragic event. We also want to say a special thank you to all the amazing staff that have cared for our son and brother here in the pediatric intensive care unit at Harborview. Our family is overwhelmed with the love and care that has been provided to our loved one during this time and you all will forever hold a special place in our hearts. But we also ask that you respect our privacy at this time of our deep loss.”
Nate Hatch, the fifth person shot, was released from Harborview on Thursday after undergoing surgery to repair his jaw. The three boys were cousins and enrolled members of the Tulalip Tribes.
