KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -

The mother of one of two survivors of the random shootings in Kalamazoo says her adult daughter remains hospitalized.

Iona Carruthers issued a statement Tuesday saying that Tiana Carruthers was in serious condition.

Authorities have said the 25-year-old was with several children at an apartment complex's playground Saturday when a man approached them in a car.

She sensed trouble and put herself between the car and the children, telling them to run to their nearby home. Carruthers was shot multiple times.

In all, six people were killed at three locations. The other survivor is a 14-year-old girl.

Jason Dalton is charged with six counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.
