School: New York college student injured in bus station shooting released from hospital

RICHMOND, Va. (AP/WRIC) — A Binghamton University official says one of two women injured in a shooting at a busy bus terminal in Virginia is a member of the school’s track team.

Ryan Yarosh, a spokesman for the school in New York, said Friday that the team was on its way to a meet at the College of William & Mary when the shooting occurred at the Greyhound station Thursday. He says the woman’s injuries are non-life threatening.

Friday afternoon, the school happily announced the student-athlete had been released from the hospital.

Yarosh says school officials had been in touch with the woman’s parents and have arranged for counselors to be available for students. Yarosh said he couldn’t disclose her name.

State Trooper Chad Dermyer was fatally shot at the bus station while conducting a training exercise.

Authorities said that four other bystanders at the scene were injured. Two of the bystanders were shot. It’s not clear at this time how the other two were injured.

Police are still investigating.
