Stroup getting better: Gun shot victim's condition upgraded

Posted: Friday, November 28, 2008

In the wake of Wednesday's shooting, survivor Margaret Stroup was listed in 'serious condition,' according to the shift coordinator at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage where she is being treated.

This is an improvement from Wednesday when she was listed in critical condition.

At Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, no updates were available on the operational status of the building. As of Wednesday afternoon certain areas of the hospital remained in lock down as Alaska State Troopers concluded their investigation. Those entering the hospital were asked to do so through the Emergency Department.

Additionally, Beth Ipsen, information officer for the Troopers, said the three officers placed on three-day administrative leave following their firing upon the gunman, would remain unnamed for three days following the incident.

In an initial report issued by the Troopers, the officers were to be identified within 24 hours.

Phil Hermanek and Mike Nesper contributed to this report.
