The five wounded remain in critical condition at Sparrow Hospital.

“Without going into the specifics of their injuries, I will say that it took a team of numerous anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, general surgeons, cardiothoracic surgery, and a neurosurgery team, to handle the full extent of the injuries,” said Dr. Denny Martin. “There was one individual whose wounds did not require immediate surgical intervention and were taken directly to the ICU from the emergency room.”
