UPDATE: 1:35 p.m. | Nate Hatch, one of the five students shot at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Oct. 24, was released Thursday from Harborview Medical Center.
Hatch, 15, was shot in the face by his cousin Jaylen Fryberg after Fryberg texted a group of teens asking them to meet him for lunch, authorities said. Once seated at a round table in the school’s main cafeteria, Fryberg opened fire with a handgun, fatally shooting two and wounding three others before taking his own life.
The shootings claimed the lives of Zoe Galasso, Gia Soriano, and Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, all 14. Andrew Fryberg, 15, remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Harborview.
A motive for the shootings is unknown.
Susan Gregg, spokeswoman for Harborview Medical Center, said the Hatch family is not yet ready to speak publicly about what they went through. She is expected to release a statement from them in the coming hours.
The Daily Herald reports that more than 200 friends and family gathered along the road leading onto the Tulalip Indian Reservation to welcome Hatch home. He was driven past the crowd in a black tribal police vehicle.
Witnesses said that Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in a school cafeteria at 10:39 a.m., shooting three girls and two boys. After shooting the teens, Fryberg is believed to have committed suicide, authorities said.
