SEATTLE -- The condition of one of two surviving victims in the Seattle Pacific University shooting was upgraded Friday at Harborview Medical Center, while the other victim was released from the hospital.
The hospital said 19-year-old Sarah Williams was upgraded from critical to serious and stable condition. She underwent five hours of surgery Thursday night and was recovering in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit with wounds to her abdomen Friday.
“Right now it’s a day of monitoring her,” Harborview representative Susan Gregg explained. “All these patients and the families are going through a lot of mental anguish and trauma dealing with this incident."
The second victim, identified by Harborview as SPU student Thomas Fowler, 24, was in stable condition and released from the hospital Friday night.
“(He) suffered pellet fragments to his neck, chin and side of his upper extremities,” Gregg explained.
A third student, 19-year-old Paul Lee from Portland, Ore., died from his injuries at Harborview Medical Center Thursday.
Jon Meis, the 22-year-old student building monitor who helped subdue the suspect, was checked at the hospital Thursday night and then released. He was not physically injured in the struggle.
