"MARYSVILLE, WA — A boy targeted his school in a deadly gun rampage, killing one person and shooting several others in the head before turning the gun on himself.
"Witnesses said Jaylen Fryberg walked into the cafeteria at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington state and opened fire methodically without shouting or arguing.
"They said he was staring at his victims as he shot them at the school, 30 miles north of Seattle.
"As other pupils heard the shots they ran out of the cafeteria and building in a chaotic dash to safety while others were told to stay put inside classrooms.
"Marysville police commander Robb Lamoureux said Fryberg died of a self-inflicted wound.
"Three of the people who were shot had head wounds and were in a critical condition in hospital.
"Another victim, a 14-year-old boy, was listed in a serious condition.
"Many students described Fryberg as a happy, popular student, but social media accounts suggested he was struggling with an unidentified problem.
"On Wednesday, a posting on his Twitter account read: `It won't last ... It'll never last.`"
