EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The two female students shot at Marysville Pilchuck High School were in “extremely critical condition” on Saturday, while two of the boys also shot were in serious and critical condition at another Seattle-area hospital.

The two 14-year-old girls at Providence Everett Medical Center were identified as Shaylee “Shay” Chuckulnaskit and Gia Soriano. Both sustained head wounds and underwent “significant surgeries for trauma injuries,” the hospital said.

Soriano’s family released a statement saying they were in shock.

“We appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this tragedy,” said the statement released through the hospital. “Our hearts go out to the other victims and their families. Please allow us our privacy as we deal with this tragedy.”

The hospital said the next three days will be critical in treating the two girls.

“Responding to this tragedy has involved dozens of caregivers — doctors, nurses, and so many others — entire teams dedicated to providing the most compassionate care,” the hospital said on its website.

Fifteen-year-old Andrew Fryberg was being treated at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and was in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday.

Another victim, 14-year-old Nate Hatch, was listed in serious condition at Harborview with a jaw injury. He also is in the ICU.

Authorities and witnesses say a popular freshman opened fire in the school cafeteria Friday morning. One girl was killed. Authorities say the gunman died of a self-inflicted wound..
