BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) _ Eleven people hurt in Monday's shooting
at Virginia Tech remain hospitalized, including at least one in
serious condition.

Scott Hill, the C-E-O of Montgomery Regional Hospital in
Blacksburg, says eight shooting victims at his facility are
progressing well. He says all are in stable condition, with four in
the intensive care unit. One of the surgeons says ``things appear
to be headed in the right direction.''

Some of the patients are doing so well they're ready to leave
the hospital. Hill says three of the eight could possibly be
discharged by tomorrow morning.

Hill says he can't say enough about the strength of the students
and their families. He says they're ``really working hard to
recover. They don't want to be beaten in this.''
