So scary. Jaylen Fryberg allegedly exhibited more violent behavior before he opened fire and shot several students at Marysville-Pilchuk High on Oct 24. Weeks before the shooting, the 15-year-old was reportedly suspended from the football team for getting into a fight.
Police are still investigating the deadly massacre that took place at Marysville-Pilchuk High School on Oct. 24, when 15-year-old Jaylen Fryberg shot one student dead and critically injured four others. As for a motive behind Jaylen’s attack, there’s a chance it could have something to do with the fact that the popular teen was allegedly suspended from the football team in the weeks leading up to the shooting.
Jaylen Fryberg Suspended From Football Team — Possible Motive For School Shooting
Jaylen was reportedly suspended from the school’s football team after getting into a fight over “racism comments,” according to Daily Mail.
Jaylen’s social media accounts say he was a Native American and a member of the Tulalip tribe.
This is such a sad situation all around, and while racism is wrong, violence is never the answer.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Jaylen was given a gun for his birthday. On one of his social media accounts, the 15-year-old posted a picture of himself holding the gun with the caption,“Probably the best Birthday present ever! I just love my parents!”
We certainly hope, for the sake of all those affected, that authorities figure out why this happened.
At the time of the shooting, Marysville-Pilchuck High School released the following statement. “The Marysville-Pilchuck High School is currently in lockdown due to an emergency situation,” the school district said in a statement. “Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement.”
Our thoughts continue to go out to all those affected by this horrible tragedy.
