14-Year-Old Girl Wounded In Marysville School Shooting Dies
Another of the teenage victims in a Marysville high school shooting died Sunday night, raising the number of fatalities from when a student opened fire in a cafeteria to three.
14-year-old Gia Soriano succumbed to her injuries after being shot by 14-year-old Jaylen Fryberg.

Three other students remain hospitalized, two in critical condition and one in serious condition, according to KOMO News.
Dr. Joanne Roberts read a statement from Gia’s family at a new conference.
“We are devastated by this senseless tragedy. Gia is our beautiful daughter, and words cannot express how much we will miss her,” the statement said.
Roberts said Gia’s family will donate her organs for transplant.
KOMO News reports:
Of the wounded students, only 14-year-old Nate Hatch showed improvement, though he remained in serious condition in intensive care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Fifteen-year-old Andrew Fryberg also remained in critical condition in intensive care. Both are cousins of Jaylen Fryberg.
Meanwhile, 14-year-old Shaylee Chuckulnaskit remained in critical condition in intensive care at Providence Regional Medical Center.
The girl killed in the shooting Friday hasn’t been officially identified but family and friends have identified her as Zoe Galasso.
The makeshift memorial on a chain link fence by the school, which will be closed this week, kept growing Sunday. Balloons honoring the victims and the shooter adorn the fence along with flowers, stuffed toys and signs.
Meanwhile, there is no known motivation for the shooter’s actions. There is speculation that the girl, Zoe, who died on the scene, refused to go out with the shooter, and that he was also targeting his cousins when he opened fire, although that’s not officially confirmed.
