MARYSVILLE, Wash. (USA Today)— Gia Soriano, 14, died Sunday night, becoming the second victim of a shooting at a Seattle-area high school after a popular student opened fire on his classmates before taking his own life.

Gia was one of four critically injured teens taken to a local hospital Friday after high school freshman Jaylen Fryberg opened fire inside the cafeteria of Marysville-Pilchuck High School, killing one girl and injuring four others before dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
