One of the seven men brought to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in Wichita following Thursday’s deadly shooting spree at Excel Industries in Hesston remained in critical condition on Friday morning, a hospital official said.

Two shooting victims remained in serious condition, she said, while four others were in fair condition. All seven arrived at the hospital from Hesston at about the same time – between 6 and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, she said.

Four victims of the mass shooting are being treated at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. Three of them are in serious condition and one is in fair condition as of Thursday morning, hospital spokeswoman Susan Burchill said in an e-mail response to questions.

Newton Medical Center received six patients in the wake of the shooting spree, said Leslie Helmer, marketing manager for the hospital. Three were treated and released, one was transferred to Wesley Medical Center and two are in good condition as of Friday morning.
