SEATTLE, Washington -- New details continue to surface about last week's deadly shooting at a Seattle-area high school.

Police say Jaylen Fryberg used a text message to lure his victims to a cafeteria table, where he opened fire.

Fryberg shot three of his friends and two of his own cousins before taking his own life.

Two victims, Gia Soriano and Zoe Galasso, died while three others remain hospitalized.

Classes at Marysville-Pilchuck High School are canceled this week giving the community time to grieve.

What makes this different from other mass shootings we've seen, there's a lot of grief over the death of the shooter as well, despite his rampage targeting his best friends and family.

One of Fryberg's victim's,  a cousin who is hospitalized, even tweeted out his forgiveness saying "I love you and forgive in peace."

Tributes to Fryberg, who was named homecoming prince just a week before the shooting, cover the school grounds alongside memorial posters, balloons and newspaper clippings for all the victims.

People are not only grieving the victims, they also see that the shooter's family is grieving and horrified.

Stay strong Marysville, your empathy is inspiring.
