The Michigan State University Police Department announced that two of the students who were injured in the mass shooting that took place on campus in February have been discharged from the hospital. Although the names of the students were not mentioned in the tweet, they were previously listed in serious condition. One student remains in critical condition while the other is in fair condition, as per the MSU Police and Public Safety Department. Last week, one other student was released from the hospital.
Troy Forbush, a student who was shot in the chest, shared on Facebook on February 26 that he had a “brush with death” and spent a week in the ICU and three more days under the care of the medical staff. He also expressed his gratitude towards the doctors who performed emergency surgery on him and saved his life. In his post, he vowed to work with his family, friends, community, university, and state government officials to bring about change.
The tragic Incident claimed the lives of three students, Arielle Anderson, Brian Fraser, and Alexandria Verner, who were killed on February 13 when the shooter opened fire in a classroom and then in another building. The identity of the gunman, who had no known ties to MSU, remains a mystery. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the night of the killings, and authorities found a note in his possession that threatened further shootings hundreds of miles away in New Jersey.
