Police: Seattle shooter lured students to lunch

Authorities said that 15-year-old Jaylen Fryberg shot five friends at a Marysville high school after he invited them all to the same lunch table.
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.”
