4th teen dies in Washington state school shooting

SEATTLE (AP) – One of the teenagers wounded in a Washington state high school shooting has died, raising to four the number of fatalities from the moment when a student opened fire in a cafeteria.

Officials at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett said 14-year-old Shaylee Chuckulnaskit (Chuckle-NAS-kit) died Friday afternoon. Zoe Galasso, 14, was killed during the shooting Oct. 24 by a popular freshman at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Gia Soriano, also 14, died Sunday at the hospital.

Two other students remain hospitalized.

The shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, died of a self-inflicted wound.

The school 30 miles north of Seattle was closed this week and will reopen Monday. The school will have grief counselors available.
