Fourth death after school shooting

One of the teenagers wounded in a US school shooting has died, raising to four the number of fatalities from when a student opened fire in a cafeteria.

Officials at Providence Regional Medical Centre in Everett, Washington state, said 14-year-old Shaylee Chuckulnaskit died yesterday afternoon.

Zoe Galasso, 14, was killed during the shooting on October 24 by a popular student at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Gia Soriano, also 14, died on Sunday at the hospital.

Two other students remain in hospital.

The shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, died of a self-inflicted wound.

The school 30 miles north of Seattle was closed this week and will reopen on Monday. The school will have grief counsellors available.
