Kalamazoo shooting victim returning to school 1½ years later 


BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — The mother of the youngest survivor of an Uber driver’s alleged shooting rampage in Kalamazoo, Michigan, is returning to school part-time.

Vickie Kopf tells WOOD-TV that 15-year-old Abigail Kopf will attend Harper Creek High School in Battle Creek for two to three hours per day, possibly five days per week.

Abigail was in seventh grade when Uber driver Jason Dalton allegedly shot her and seven other people in February 2016. She and another woman were the only victims to survive.

Kopf says her daughter suffers severe headaches. Part of Abigail’s skull has been replaced with a plate because of damage from a gunshot wound.

Kopf says Abigail will have a personal assistant with her at all times to ensure she has all of the support she needs.
