The most recent U.S. school shooting perpetrator used his mobile phone to set up his evil scheme. 15 year old Jaylen Fryberg sent text messages to five friends who were all invited to the cafeteria.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that Jaylen lured in all five of his victims to sit with him at a lunch table at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington state. The distressed and armed freshman walked into the cafeteria and opened fire on all five victims who were sitting together. The horrific shooting left two classmates dead and three wounded. Short after, Jaylen turned the gun on himself in a classic murder-suicide scheme.
The weapon that was used to carry out this shooting was a .40-caliber Beretta, which has been linked to a license and registration of Jaylen’s relative. However, the local police department is still investigating exactly how the teenager got his hands on the gun.
The tragedy at Marysville-Pilchuck High School brings back some memories of other notorious shootings such as those that occurred at Columbine High School in 1999 and Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2013. Such shootings are nothing short of massacres by perpetrators who had some things in common.
Some rumors indicate that Jaylen had been teased and bullied despite being a popular king who was honored as homecoming prince. It’s also believed that Adam Lanza was also a victim of bullying and that prompted him to kill more than two dozen children in Newtown, Connecticut. However, all school shootings ultimately shine some light on gun control issues. It’s enraging to hear about teenagers illegally getting their hands on firearms.
An unfortunate example of how iPhones and technology, including dependence on smart phones are really changing the face of the planet, sometimes not for the better. Makes you think…Thanks Sam Tabar for sharing.
