This past Friday, the Marysville-Pilchuck (Wash.) High School football team was set to take on Oak Harbor High School for the Wesco 3A North Division championship. But hours before the game a freshman football player at Marysville-Pilchuck, Jaylen Fryberg, opened fire on his classmates in the school’s cafeteria, killing one and wounding four others before turning the gun on himself. (One of the four students he injured later died Sunday night; the other three remain hospitalized.)
As a result of the shooting, the Marysville school district cancelled all athletic events.
