KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — The 14-year-old girl wounded in Saturday’s shooting spree in Kalamazoo remained in critical condition Thursday, but her parents said she has been showing signs of improvement.

Abigail Kopf is “responding to staff, has given thumbs up and wiggled her toes,” her parents said in a Thursday statement.

“We anticipate further improvement over the next several days,” the statement continued.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Abigail’s family cover medical expenses. People can also donate specifically to help Abigail through the Help Now! fund for the shooting spree victims.

Abigail’s parents thanked everyone who has donated or offered to donate to help their family.

Abigail was among the eight people shot in the shooting spree. Also wounded was 25-year-old Tiana Carruthers, who was the first to be shot. She is recovering.

Killed were Tyler Smith, Rich Smith, Mary Jo Nye, Mary Lou Nye, Barbara Hawthorne and Dorothy Brown.
