(NEWSER) – One of the four students shot and injured by classmate Jaylen Fryberg Friday afternoon has lost her fight for life. Gia Soriano, 14, had been in critical condition with a head wound suffered in the attack at Marysville-Pilchuck High School north of Seattle, reports CNN. "We are devastated by this senseless tragedy," her family said in a statement. "Gia is our beautiful daughter and words cannot express how much we miss her." In other developments:
- Megan Silberberger has been identified as the teacher who stopped the teen's rampage. "I believe she's actually the real hero," a student who witnessed the shootings tells KIRO-TV. "She's the one that intercepted him with the gun. He tried either reloading or tried aiming at her. She tried moving his hand away and he tried shooting and shot himself in the neck."
- Another student killed in the cafeteria attack, 14-year-old Zoe Galasso, was mourned at a candlelit vigil at the high school last night, reports NBC. Hundreds attended a community meeting earlier, where people spoke of coming together to move on from the tragedy. "There is no anger anymore," a school district transportation worker says. "Everybody is coming together as a community."
