The lady, Vicki Gardner, who survived an on-air shooting that killed two TV writers has been discharged from the hospital.
Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital representative Chris Turnbull says, on Monday, Vicki Gardner was discharged.
The official executive of the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce, Gardner, was noting inquiries concerning the group on live TV when gunfire erupted on Aug. 26.
Her spouse, Tim Gardner, has said doctors evacuated one of her kidneys and some of her colon.
The shooter, Vester Flanagan, trapped WDBJ-TV cameraman Adam Ward and journalist Alison Parker amid the meeting at the Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center. Parker and Ward died of shot injuries to the body and head. Flanagan lethally shot himself after a police pursue.
WDBJ immediately switched back to the anchor at the station, her eyes big and jaw dropping as she said, “alright, not certain what happened there.” The station later went live once more, giving an account they could call their own station and staff as the story developed.
Ward and Parker were executed as the shooter fired around 15 shots. Their meeting subject, Vicki Gardner, was in stable condition later Wednesday after surgery for her injuries.
The shooter was Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, of Roanoke, who showed up on WDBJ as Bryce Williams, powers said. He had been terminated from the station in 2013. Hours after the fact and several miles away, he kept running off the street and a trooper discovered him with a self-perpetrated shot injury. He kicked the bucket at a healing center later Wednesday.
