Two girls, 14, and a boy, 15, were in critical condition in the hospital after Friday's bloodshed in the northwestern state of Washington that also left one student and the young shooter dead in yet another US school attack. Both male students were reportedly cousins of Jaylen Fryberg, a popular first-year student at the Marysville-Pilchuck High School who opened fire in the school cafeteria. Joanne Roberts, a doctor at Providence Regional Medical Center in the city of Everett, 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Seattle, said the girls had undergone surgery for head wounds. Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said detectives "were able to confirm that a cafeteria worker attempted to stop the shooter," while local media said the employee was a teacher.
