(MARYSVILLE, Wash.) -- A cafeteria worker tried stopping a freshman homecoming prince who opened fire inside his Washington state high school, killing one person and injuring four others - including two of his relatives - before shooting himself.
The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Saturday that it had finished its on-scene investigation of the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, about 40 miles north of Seattle. Eyewitnesses and law enforcement sources identified the shooter as Jaylen Fryberg, a freshman at the school.
The Sheriff's Office didn't detail what the cafeteria worker did while attempting to stop Fryberg, 14.
A .40 caliber handgun was recovered from the school, said the Sheriff's Office, which believes it was the weapon used in the Friday shooting that left one female victim dead.
Marysville police have said the gun used in the shooting was legally acquired, though have not said by whom.

(TEHRAN, Iran) -- A woman convicted of killing a man she claimed was trying to sexually abuse her was hanged on Saturday in a Tehran prison.
"The shocking news that Reyhaneh Jabbari has been executed is deeply disappointing in the extreme," Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International's Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa Programme, said. "This is another bloody stain on Iran's human rights record."
Jabbari, 26, was arrested in 2007 for the murder of a former employee of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and was sentenced to death by a criminal court in Tehran in 2009.
She admitted to stabbing the man in the back, claiming that he tried to sexually assault her. She also claimed that a second man was also in the house at the time of the incident. Amnesty International says that those claims were never properly investigated.
Jabbari's execution was deferred multiple times.
On Friday, Sahraoui noted that such occurrences are not uncommon. "Once again Iran has insisted on applying the death penalty despite serious concerns over the fairness of the trial."

(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. government will recognize same-sex married couples in six more states, Attorney General Eric Holder said Saturday.
The move is yet another development after the Supreme Court decided earlier in October not to hear any pending cases regarding same-sex marriage. The federal government will now recognize same-sex married couples in Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming.
Holder made a similar announcement last week with respect to seven other states. Saturday's action brings the total number of states where the federal government recognizes same-sex married couples to 32, plus the District of Columbia.
"With each new state where same-sex marriages are legally recognized," Holder said in a statement, "our nation moves closer to achieving...full equality for all Americans." The government will work with those states "to ensure that same-sex married couples...receive the fullest array of benefits allowable under the law."
Holder also announced Saturday that the Department of Justice determined that it can legally recognize marriages performed in Indiana and Wisconsin in June. A number of marriages were performed after federal district courts ruled those states' bans on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, but later legal developments created confusion about the status of those marriages.'
