A teenage boy named Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in his high school cafeteria Friday.
The shooting happened at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, about 37 miles north of Seattle, where Fryberg was a freshman.
Fellow freshman Brandon Carr spoke with The Seattle Times about the shooting. Carr said he "started hearing these loud banging noises, like someone hitting a trash can," heard screaming, and ran.
“Once I knew it was gunshots, we just booked it,” Carr told the paper.
Students at the school hid under classroom desks and in closets, among other places, as the school was placed on lockdown.
As of Nov. 7, a total of five people had died from the shooting, including Fryberg.
We are devastated by this senseless tragedy. Gia is our beautiful daughter and words cannot express how much we will miss her. We've made the decision to donate Gia's organs so that others may benefit. Our daughter was loving, kind and this gift honors her life.
Thank you to Providence for their excellent care – bar none – from beginning to end. Thank you to our friends and family who have supported us. Thank you to Drs. Bill Finley, Sanford Wright and Anita Tsen for their tremendous support and compassion. And thank you, to Bill and Ben with LifeCenter.
We ask that you please respect our privacy and give us the space and time we need to grieve and spend time together as a family in memory of Gia.

On Nov. 7, 15-year-old Andrew Fryberg died from his injuries. His family released a statement:
We express our thanks for the amazing support from the community, as well as from everyone around the world that have been praying for us all through this tragic event.
We also want to say a special thank you to all the amazing staff that have cared for our son and brother here in the pediatric intensive care unit at Harborview.
Our family is overwhelmed with the love and care that has been provided to our loved one during this time and you all will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
But we also ask that you respect our privacy at this time of our deep loss.
Following Andrew Fryberg's death, 14-year-old Nate Hatch became the only surviving victim. Both he and Andrew Fryberg reportedly were Jaylen Fryberg's cousins.
Fryberg's motive remained unclear, though clues about his recent life suggest he experienced things ranging from relationship woes to trouble at school.
A student at the school told The Seattle Times that Fryberg was angry about a girl. The student added that the girl was one of those shot. Fryberg's recent tweets also include complaints about feeling broken.
"He shot people he cared about," Dylen Boomer, a friend and football teammate of Fryberg's, told the Seattle Times.
Fryberg also recently had been suspended after getting into a fight, CNN reported. A student said the incident involved bullying and "a couple words said towards him that he obviously didn't like."
Still, Fryberg reportedly was popular at his school and recently was crowned a homecoming prince.
Fryberg was voted the homecoming prince for his freshman class, ABC News reported. In a video posted Oct. 19, he appears standing beside a classmate, smiling, while an announcer reads off a list of his activities.
