County stands with Marysville-Pilchuck High School



On Friday, Oct. 24, a High School freshman opened fire in the school cafeteria and shot five of his classmates. The death toll as of last week was three — two classmates and himself. Among those he was targeting were his high school crush, who he fatally shot, and his cousin who was reportedly dating the girl.
One of the victims succumbed to her injuries in an Everett hospital the night of Sunday, Oct. 26.
The mass school shooting was a first in Snohomish County.
The shooter, who came from a prominent Tulalip Tribes family, was being groomed to be a future tribe leader.
On a day that saw tragedy at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, the Monroe High School football game started with a moment of silence as both Monroe and Mariner fans, along with the Bearcat cheerleaders wore the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks colors of red and white.
At left, fans wait for the beginning of the game behind a sign of support for Marysville-Pilchuck.
