ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - One of the students wounded when a classmate opened fire inside a Roswell middle school gym is recovering at home.

The family of 13-year-old Kendal Sanders said she was released from the hospital Sunday. She had two surgeries last week to repair damage done to her shoulder.

Sanders‘ mother told reporters gathered at a news conference Monday that her daughter has lost movement in one arm but her feeling and mobility should return.

The girl’s family expects she will be homeschooled for the rest of the year.

The other victim, 12-year-old Nathaniel Tavarez, remained at a Lubbock, Texas, hospital Monday. A family member says the boy is in critical but stable condition and is now breathing on his own.

Sanders and Tavarez were wounded when the gunman entered the crowded Berrendo Middle School gym last Tuesday and fired three times from a 20-gauge shotgun.

The seventh-grade suspect has been charged as a juvenile with three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Police have yet to speculate about a motive.
