Shorecrest, Shorewood Students Shot This Morning Identified

Counseling is being made available by school district

Editor's note: This story has been clarified after a check of a recent city neighborhood map, after a reader from Richmond Beach pointed out the shooting scene was, "not in Richmond Beach at all."

UPDATE:

The 17-year-old girl shot to death early this morning, has been identified as Tiana Montgomery, a senior at Shorecrest High School, sources have confirmed.

The 18-year-old who was shot is Darrold Devaughn Edwards, a student at Shorewood High School, sources confirmed.

Edwards is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center, KOMO radio is reporting. 

King County Major Crimes detectives are pursuing leads on the case but no arrests have been made yet, said Sgt. Rodney Chinnick, of the King County Sheriff's Office. 

ORIGINAL STORY: 

The 17-year-old girl shot to death near Richmond Beach Road early this morning was a Shorecrest student and the boy shot was a Shorewood student, according to Shoreline Schools Superintendent Sue Walker. 

Here is the letter posted on the Shoreline School District Web site: 

Dear Shoreline Families and Our Community: 

As many of you are aware, there was a shooting incident in Shoreline last night that involved Shoreline students from both Shorecrest and Shorewood. A Shorecrest student passed away in the early hours of this morning from her injuries. A Shorewood student was critically injured in the same incident and is at Harborview Medical Center.

This is a huge shock to our entire community. We are offering counseling support as some of our students may want to seek additional help today, and in the days to come. Please do encourage your student to seek out our counselors or your family advocate for this support. School operations are proceeding as normal at both high schools.

Shoreline police are investigating and we are in direct communication with our staff and school resource officer.

As we learn more, we will keep our school community updated.

Sincerely,

Sue Walker
Superintendent

Occupy our kids lives. Half of the parents I know allow their kids to play virtual conflict, war and gun violence games for HOURS EACH DAY. Jealousy (as was stated in last night's news) should never lead to killing one another. Time to prioritize teaching empathy and dealing with feelings in general.
