Hospital official say a police officer and two civilians wounded in the Washington Navy Yard shooting are doing well.
WASHINGTON- Hospital official say a police officer and two civilians wounded in the Washington Navy Yard shooting are doing well.
Dr. Janis Orlowski, MedStar Washington Hospital Center's chief medical officer, said Tuesday morning that the police officer, who was shot in the legs, and a woman who was shot in the shoulder are in fair condition. She says a young woman whose skull was grazed by a bullet is in good condition and asked Monday if she could go home.
Orlowski says the woman feels well and wants to start putting some of this behind her. She says the two female victims saw others who were shot and are "very worried about their co-workers" but aren't yet aware of the extent of Monday's events, which saw 13 people, including the gunman, killed.
