News reaching us indicates that Perry High school principal Dan Marburger who was wounded in the Perry, Iowa, school shooting on Jan. 4 has died.

Perry High School Principal Dan Marburger and six others, including two staff members and four teenage students, were injured in the shooting that left one sixth-grader dead.

The 17-year-old student who opened fire also died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

According to a post on Marburger’s official GoFundMe page attributed to Elizabeth Marburger, he died Sunday morning.

Marburger was called a hero by many in the days after the shooting. He put himself in harm’s way so students could try to escape from the teenage shooter who opened fire in the cafeteria as students were gathering for breakfast before class, the AP reported.

The state Department of Public Safety said Marburger “acted selflessly and placed himself in harm’s way in an apparent effort to protect his students.”

Sixth-grader Ahmir Jolliff was killed in the shooting.

Ahmir — known as “Smiley” around his house — was an 11-year-old whirlwind of cheerful activity, according to his mother. He kept a trunk of toys unlocked in the front yard so anyone could play with them, she said.

He loved soccer, played the tuba and sang in choir. He had a habit of touching people on their shoulder and asking them how their day was.
