Witness: Wash. Gunman Just Went Through Breakup, Fought With Student
Jordan Luton, a freshman who witnessed the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, was on “Shepard Smith Reporting” to recount the shocking scene.
Luton said the shooter, who he said was also a freshman, pulled out a gun in the cafeteria and started firing at a group of people.
“I heard people start screaming and we all dropped to the ground,” Luton said.
Luton said he knew the shooter. He said the student was Native American, who played on the football team with Luton. Luton described the unnamed student as a good athlete and “pretty good kid all around, until now,” Luton said he would have never expected this from him.
According to Luton, the student had recently been in a fight with another student, who allegedly made a racial remark to the shooter about Native Americans. He had also just gone through a breakup with his girlfriend.
Luton said he knew a few of the victims and said one of them was the shooter’s good friend.
