One of school shooter Jaylen Fryberg's cousins died last night, becoming the fourth victim in the Oct. 24 killings in Washington state. Andrew Fryberg, 15, was one of five teens shot in the head at a cafeteria lunch table inside Marysville-Pilchuck High School, reports CNN. Only one survived, 14-year-old Nate Hatch, also the shooter's cousin. He was released from the hospital last week. On Facebook, Hatch wrote that Andrew Fryberg was his “other half and my brother,” and that they were “supposed to conquer this life together," reports the Seattle Times. Both were lifelong friends with Jaylen, who killed himself at the scene. (More school shooting stories.)
