Marysville school shooter's dad reports to California prison


EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - A father convicted of gun crimes after his 15-year-old son used his gun to kill four high school classmates and himself has begun serving his sentence at a California prison.

The Daily Herald reports that 42-year-old Raymond Fryberg was booked into a Southern California prison Feb. 17 after being given a two-year sentence in January.

Fryberg was convicted in September of six counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. He was the subject of a 2002 restraining order, which meant he was prohibited from owning guns.

One of the firearms, a .40-caliber Beretta pistol, was used by his son in the October 2014 shootings at Marysville Pilchuck High School.

Fryberg filed a notice on Jan. 21 saying that he plans to appeal his conviction.
