LOS ANGELES, October 28. /TASS/. The actions of an American teenager, who killed two of his classmates and wounded three others in Marysville, Washington, were not spontaneous, but intentional, said Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary.
According to Trenary, 15-year-old Jaylen Fryberg arranged meeting in the school cafeteria with his friends through text messages, before the shooting. He entered the room and opened fire on his classmates from a 40-caliber Beretta. One girl died at the scene, another one succumbed to injuries in hospital. The shooter then turned the gun on himself.
Three other students — including two of Fryberg’s cousins — remain in hospital. Two are in a critical condition, while one’s condition is satisfactory.
Revenge might be one of the reasons of shooting. According to Fryberg’s family, one of the victims did not want to date him and chose his cousin instead.
The police said that the gun was purchased legally and owned by his father. The authorities investigate how a minor was able to obtain the weapon.
The investigation could continue for months and will include going through numerous text messages, phone and social media records, according to Sheriff Trenary.
A long trial should be expected, the sheriff added. "As I have stated, conducting an investigation of this scope takes time, and we may not have answers to many of your questions for several months," Trenary said.
