Two women who were injured in Wednesday’s shooting at the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy have been released from the hospital, and a third victim’s condition has been upgraded, officials said.

Rebecca Clair Brown of Roanoke and Martha Madeline Short of Clintwood were discharged Sunday from Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport, Tenn., spokeswoman Amy Stevens said.

Brown, 38, spent many years working as a licensed respiratory therapist before entering law school last year. Short, 37, earned a master’s degree in urban planning from Virginia Tech and worked for the Mount Rogers Planning District Commission in Marion. She later spent six years as a grants writer for the town of Wytheville.

Stacey Bean, 22, of Paducah, Ky., has been upgraded to good condition at Wellmont Bristol Regional Medical Center.
