Posted: Friday, November 28, 2008

JUNEAU - A woman shot by a former employee at an Alaska hospital remains in critical condition.

A spokeswoman at Providence Alaska Medical Center says 57-year-old Margaret Stroup's condition hasn't changed since she arrived Wednesday night.

Stroup and a co-worker at Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna were shot by recently fired employee Joseph Marchetti, hospital officials said.

Mike Webb, 55, did not survive the shooting, dying about two hours after Marchetti fired multiple shots shortly before 10 a.m. in the Soldotna hospital.

Stroup was shot several times in the chest and underwent surgery. She was later flown 75 miles north to the Anchorage hospital.
