Crofton, Md. (AP) - A Maryland native who was wounded in a mass shooting in Las Vegas has been transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

Tina Frost’s Las Vegas neurosurgeon, Dr. Keith Blum, told The Capital that he’d sent Frost to Johns Hopkins via medical flight Sunday after she made significant progress, taking her first steps and opening her left eye last week.

Blum says there could be some impairment in the future, but he thinks she will be able to talk again.

The 27-year-old Crofton native was wounded in her right eye while attending the Route 91 Harvest festival with her boyfriend. Fifty-eight people were killed in the shooting, as well as the shooter, Stephen Paddock. Nearly 500 people were injured.

A GoFundMe page for Frost has so far raised over $525,000.
