One of the teenage girls shot and injured in Wednesday’s Freeman High School shooting was released from the hospital Thursday.

The two other teenage girls injured in the shooting are in satisfactory condition at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, the hospital said in a news release.

In a statement released Thursday, the families thanked the community, hospital staff and first responders for their support.

“In this, our darkest hour, we feel blessed and lucky in so many ways. Our daughters are recovering from their wounds, and we know that your thoughts and prayers are with us,” the statement said. “Our hearts are breaking for another family in our community who lost their son. We are keeping Sam’s family in our thoughts and prayers.”

Emma Nees, Jordyn Goldsmith and Gracie Jensen were all shot by and injured by fellow classmate Caleb Sharpe. Sharpe also shot and killed Sam Strahan.
