Girl hurt in Washington school shooting moving out of ICU

The little girl wounded in the accidental shooting at a Washington elementary school last month is leaving the intensive-care unit at a Seattle hospital.

Eight-year-old Amina Kocer-Bowman’s condition is being upgraded from serious to satisfactory, Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg told the Seattle Times Thursday afternoon.


Kocer-Bowman was wounded on Feb. 22 at a school in Bremerton, Wash., when a gun brought to class by a 9-year-old boy went off in his backpack.

In the five surgeries she has undergone since the shooting, she has lost her gallbladder, part of her small intestine and a major vein. Her elbow was shattered and has been patched with a large metal plate. The bullet is lodged near her spine but isn’t affecting her ability to move, the Times reported.
