MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) -- A high school in Washington state won't reopen the cafeteria where a student fatally shot four friends and wounded another before killing himself last October.

The Daily Herald reports ( ) that the school board of Marysville-Pilchuck High School is following wishes expressed at a December forum and in a recent survey.

Since 15-year-old Jaylen Fryberg opened fire Oct. 24, students have been eating lunch in the gym.

The district is looking for funds for a new cafeteria, and some have recommended replacing the entire school, which is 44 years old.

Fryberg killed three 14-year-old girls and a 15-year-old boy who was his cousin after inviting them to lunch. He injured another one of his cousins, a 14-year-old boy.
