A wounded survivor of the Fort Hood shooting was expected to leave hospital Friday, but three others remained in serious condition, doctors said.
All nine of service members taken to the Scott & White Memorial Hospital with gunshot wounds following Wednesday’s deadly rampage were improving, a spokesman for the hospital said.
Five were discharged on Thursday while one more patient listed in good condition was kept in overnight.
Three critically wounded personnel were upgraded to “serious” condition on Thursday – including one with a suspected spinal injury - and all three are expected to live.
"We do not expect any more fatalities at this point,” hospital trauma director Dr. Matthew Davis told reporters earlier Thursday.
All nine of those treated at the hospital in Temple, Texas, are service members, ranging in age from the early 20s to the mid-40s.
Injuries include gunshot wounds to arms, legs, abdomens and chests.
