FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – A Colorado State University student is doing better after a drive-by shooting in Fort Collins.
Jamie Lynn Warfield’s condition was upgraded from critical to serious condition at the Medical Center of the Rockies Monday night. She was shot while walking home with seven friends at Myrtle and Remington near the CSU campus at about 2 a.m. Monday morning.
Witnesses say an SUV followed the group and then a gunman inside the vehicle opened fire, hitting Warfield in the stomach.
Friends say its hard to believe this could happen to someone like her.
“She’s an overall good person. Very strong heart, very motivational,” Martin Gutowski said.
Warfield is an ROTC student and is completing her final course before she is set to be commissioned in the U.S. Air Force.
Dave Daniel, Warfield’s grandfather, spoke to CBS4 by phone about the shooting. Daniel is driving to Colorado from Florida after hearing about the crime. He says he has no sympathy for the gunman.
“She likes to do everything, she loves horses,” said. “She loves animals and people and she seems to get along with everybody.”
The shooter is still on the loose. There’s no description of a suspect or suspects so far.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to call (970) 416-2195.
