Hospitals release 2 theater shooting survivors
DENVER (AP) – Colorado hospital officials say two more survivors of the mass shooting in an Aurora theater have been released and another is improving.
University of Colorado Hospital said Monday that one of its patients from the Friday shooting has been discharged. Nine patients remain there, including five in critical condition.
The Medical Center of Aurora discharged another patient. It still has five patients, with two in critical condition.
Children’s Hospital Colorado has upgraded one adult patient from fair to good condition. Another adult remains in serious condition.
The attack by a gunman during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” left 12 people dead and injured 58 more. Authorities say most sustained gunshot wounds, while others were injured in the rush to leave the theater.
