SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A recent graduate of a Central Valley university who was shot multiple times when a gunman opened fire in a Colorado movie theater is among the survivors of the rampage.
Petra Anderson, who graduated from the University of the Pacific in May, was shot four times during a midnight showing of the Batman movie. One pellet entered her nose and traveled through her brain.
A Colorado native, Anderson graduated with a major in music composition. In 2010, she composed and directed a musical tribute to veterans at the university concert hall. The 22 year-old was headed to the University of Maryland to pursue a graduate degree.
Her boyfriend, Austin Hogan, spoke to the Associated Press by phone from a hospital. Hogan said that Anderson was responding to doctors.
