Survivor of lounge shooting improves

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- The medical condition of the most seriously wounded survivor of a fatal Jackson lounge shooting has been upgraded.

The shooting early Sunday killed 19-year-old LeCarlos Todd of Memphis. Travis Steed of Jackson, who is 30, was airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where a nursing supervisor said his condition on Monday morning had improved from critical to serious.

Two other shooting victims were admitted to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. Fourteen more were released after treatment for gunshot wounds and two others were hurt when trampled by people running for exits.

Police said at least three people shot into the crowd during a party following the Saturday night basketball game at Lane College against Lemoyne-Owen College.

Police said there was no immediate indication the shooting was gang-related.
