SAN ANTONIO – A 10-year-old boy wounded in the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde was released late Monday from a San Antonio hospital.
Noah Orona was released from Methodist Children’s Hospital, his family told ABC News. Noah is resting at home and in good spirits but still reluctant to talk about the shooting and asking for privacy.
His parents told ABC News that Noah played dead after he was shot and watched his teacher shield other students from the gunman before getting shot herself. Noah told them that he watched his teacher fall on top of another child and die.
In the meantime, University Health officials provided updates on three shooting victims who are being treated at University Hospital.
Officials said on Twitter that a 66-year-old woman and a 9-year-old girl are in good condition. A 10-year-old girl is listed in serious condition.
