Bishop Thomas Daly of Spokane has urged Christians to pray for the victims of a Sept. 13 high school shooting, in which one student was killed and three others were hospitalized.
"I would like to ask that you join me in prayers for all those impacted by the shooting at Freeman High School this morning," he said in a Sept. 13 statement.
The high school, which has just over 300 students, is located near Rockford, Washington, about 30 minutes from Spokane.
Just as classes were starting Wednesday morning, a student opened fire outside of a biology classroom, authorities said. One student – identified by local media as freshman Sam Strahan – was killed in the shooting, reportedly as he tried to stop the gunman.
