A fourth teenager has died after being shot by a classmate who opened fire in a Washington state high school last month, the hospital where the boy was being treated said Friday night.
Andrew Fryberg, 15, died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
He was shot along with four others at Marysville Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington, on Oct. 24, when freshman Jaylen Fryberg opened fire on the group with a .40-caliber handgun as they sat at a cafeteria table before killing himself.
Three other students were also fatally shot, and another was wounded.
Andrew’s family put out a statement Friday expressing their gratitude for those who cared for him, as well as those who prayed and hoped for his recovery.
“We express our thanks for the amazing support from the community, as well as from everyone around the world that have been praying for us all through this tragic event,” the family said in the statement. “Our family is overwhelmed with the love and care that has been provided to our loved one during this time and you all will forever hold a special place in our hearts.”
