Nate Hatch, cousin and best friend of Jaylen Fryberg, the teen who opened fire on his friends in a school cafeteria on Friday, Oct. 24, tweeted his forgiveness to Fryberg, who shot him before turning the gun onto himself.

Three Dead After Jaylen Fryberg Opens Fire In Cafeteria

Hatch, 14, was reportedly meeting Fryberg and a group of four of their friends for lunch in the cafeteria of Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington, when Fryberg took out a gun and opened fire. Hatch, Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, Andrew Fryberg, 15 – another of Jaylen’s cousins – and Gia Soriano, 14, were taken to the hospital. Another victim, Zoe Galasso, 14, died on the scene. Soriano died at the hospital, and Chuckulnaskit and Fryberg both remain in critical condition. It is believed that all victims suffered gunshot wounds to the head.

Not much is known about Fryberg’s motivations for the shooting, but police revealed on Monday that the shooting did not appear random, as Fryberg sent out a text message to his group of friends inviting them to lunch. Some reports suggest that Fryberg targetted Galasso, a girl he had a crush on, because she had begun dating his cousin, Andrew.
