TULALIP, Wash. -- Hundreds of people packed a recreation center on the Tulalip Indian reservation Thursday for a memorial service for the 15-year-old gunman in a deadly Washington state school shooting.
Jaylen Fryberg was a homecoming prince from a prominent tribal family.
Tribal police and others wore arm bands that read "In Loving Memory" of Fryberg. Inside the recreation center, a gym was filled with hundreds of mourners. There were photos of Fryberg, and tribal members chanted and played drums.
On Friday, Fryberg pulled out a handgun in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School cafeteria north of Seattle and started shooting.
The victims were Zoe R. Galasso, 14, who died at the scene; Gia Soriano, 14, who died at a hospital Sunday night; Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, who is in critical condition; and Fryberg's cousins, Nate Hatch, 14, and Andrew Fryberg, 15. Andrew Fryberg is in critical condition, while Hatch is having surgery to repair his jaw. He's listed in satisfactory condition.
At Thursday's memorial for Jaylen Fryberg, which included a slide show of pictures from his life, some people wore white ribbons with photos of the two girls killed in the shooting. A large meal was offered for mourners at the service.
After a procession of drummers and the family walked a circle around the inside of the gym with the casket, they walked outside and loaded it on to the back of a pickup truck. The family climbed in on either side and drove about a half mile up the road to a cemetery.
The Daily Herald reported that the funeral for Galasso is set for this weekend. There was no word on a service for Soriano.
Meanwhile, officials say the investigation into the shooting will be lengthy to ensure any information released is accurate.
Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe met with detectives Tuesday and said they need to be given time for a painstaking investigation.
