Monday, we took a look at pages from the Everett, Wash., Daily Herald in the wake of Friday’s school shooting.
Daily Herald editor Neal Pattison told us:
We are the nearest paper to the school and worked on the stories and the pages with a keen awareness that the families of kids at that school would be looking at these images and reading these headlines on Saturday morning.
Neal and his staff used similar restraint for Sunday’s second-day coverage. The story of the day was the way the community was pulling together to grieve for the two dead teens — including the shooter — and the three who were still in the hospital in critical condition.
The lead picture on Sunday’s page one was by staffer Mark Mulligan.
The picture on the jump page was by Ian Terry…
…as was the picture across the way of a vigil at a local church.
On Sunday, one of the three students in critical condition died from her injuries. Also on Sunday, a community meeting was held at the school. It was the first time many of the students had seen each other since the shootings.
Here’s the way all that came together for Monday’s front page.
The pictures were by staffer Kevin Clark.
The four pictures on page three were also by Kevin Clark.
Today’s front page shows progress made in the investigation of what happened Friday. The sheriff’s department says the shooter asked his friends to meet him for lunch before he shot them.
The mainbar is by Diana Hefley.
The town is wearing red to show support for the school. Eric Stevick, Rikki King and Andrea Brown write about that at the bottom right of page one.
The Herald also today updated readers on the status of the victims.
Average daily circulation for the Daily Herald is 46,481.
