LOS ANGELES, October 25. /TASS/. A high school student in Marysville, Washington, opened fire in the high school cafeteria on Friday, shooting dead one person and wounding four others before killing himself, law enforcement agencies reported. One girl was killed in the incident, four other victims remain in hospital. They are all in serious condition, and doctors are fighting for their lives.
According to law enforcement agencies, which make reference to The Seattle Times, the shooter was after the girl who rejected him. The identity of the girl has not been disclosed.
Two girls and two boys, shooter’s cousins, were injured. The gunman shot himself in the neck at the moment when the cafeteria worker seized him by the arm, trying to stop him.
The shooter used a handgun Beretta, police reported.
“I heard three gunshots and immediately realized that it was an attack,” one of the students said. “I began to run to the exit as fast as I could, all people were running, I dropped in the class. We locked the door, some were crying, thinking that the killer would start searching and shoot at them. In less than an hour, police set us free and took us away from the school.”
