The medical examiner has not released the names of the people shot and killed at the Cascade Mall, but friends and family are confirming the youngest victim was a 16-year-old cancer survivor.

Friends are expressing their sorrow on Sarai Lara’s Facebook page.

Sarai was a sophomore at Mount Vernon High School who survived cancer as a young girl.

Sarai’s mother, Evangelina, told Q13 FOX News, she was shopping with Sarai and a younger daughter Friday evening, but they split up into different stores. Sarai went to Macy’s looking for pants.
