Seattle school shooting aftermath

A gunman opened fire on Friday morning at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, just north of Seattle, Washington.

Federal law enforcement officials reported two dead, including the shooter. Four are injured, three critical and one in serious condition. The shooter died of a self inflicted gunshot wound, according to CNN.

The first 911 calls came in to police around 10:30 AM, Marysville police spokesman Robert Lamoureux told reporters.

“The Marysville-Pilchuck High School is currently in lockdown due to an emergency situation,” the school district said in a statement.

A student told CNN from inside the school that the shooting began in the cafeteria. He described a terrifying scene with blood everywhere.

He said he knew the shooter and described him as a popular student who had recently become the victim of bullying.

Preliminary reports from CNN confirm this and say the shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, was a freshman, Native American, homecoming prince who played on the football team and who recently had been bullied.

Students tweeted from inside the school.

Liberals, of course, wasted no time in using this shooting for political purposes.
