Two Dead In High School Shooting

Two federal law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that four people have been wounded. Three were critical and one was in serious condition. The gunman who opened fire at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, just north of Seattle, shot five people, killing one, before turning the gun on himself.

A student at Washington state’s Marysville-Pilchuck High School walked into the school’s cafeteria, went up to a table with students, “came up from behind … and fired about six bullets into the backs of them,” witness Jordan Luton told CNN. “They were his friends, so it wasn’t just random,” Luton said.

Three people were in surgery at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, and one person was being transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Another federal law enforcement official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said the shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
