The Latest: Boy recovering after Utah shooting that killed 3

People leave items at a memorial for the victims of a fatal shooting Wednesday, June 7, 2017, in Sandy, Utah. Utah investigators and residents of a middle-class Salt Lake City suburb were trying Wednesday to understand what led a man to open fire on a woman and children inside a car leaving the woman and one of her sons dead, another son in critical condition and a girl injured.

SANDY, Utah (AP) — The Latest on a shooting that left three people dead and two children injured in suburban Salt Lake City (all times local):

10 a.m.

A spokesman for the family of a woman and boy slain in a shooting says a second brother who was injured is slowly improving, though he remains in an intensive care unit.

Family friend Jeff White said Thursday the injured boy also suffered a brain aneurysm last year related to natural causes. He says that Myles Rackley’s aneurysm was terrifying, and his recovery made him seem like a “little walking miracle.”

White says the family hasn’t yet made funeral arrangements for 6-year-old kindergartner Jase Rackley or his mother, 39-year-old Memorez Rackley.

Police say she had some kind of relationship with shooter Jeremy Patterson, a 32-year-old man who turned the gun on himself Tuesday after opening fire on the car of a woman who had stopped to help. The driver’s daughter was also hurt.
