Gia Soriano, 14, died Sunday night, officials at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett said.

Another girl was killed during the shooting Friday, but she hasn't been officially identified, KING-TV reported.

The shooter, Jaylen Fryberg — a popular freshman at Marysville-Pilchuck High School north of Seattle — died of a self-inflicted wound.

Three other students remain hospitalized, two in critical condition and one in serious condition.

Parents and students gathered in a gymnasium at the school Sunday afternoon for a community meeting, with speakers urging support and prayers and tribal members playing drums and singing songs. Fryberg was from a prominent Tulalip Indian family.
