Teen who survived Kalamazoo shooting is walking

The mother of a 14-year-old girl who survived a mass shooting in southwestern Michigan says the teenager is able to walk with assistance.

Vicki Kopf tells the Battle Creek Enquirer that Abigail Kopf opened her eyes Tuesday and took some steps at a hospital Wednesday.

Gene Kopf predicts their daughter, who was shot in the head, will be "very close to functional ... with no serious repercussions" in the months ahead.

Six people were killed during a series of random shootings in the Kalamazoo area on Feb. 20.

Abigail and a 25-year-old woman survived.

Vicki Kopf says she can't wait to see Abigail's "sass and spunk" again.

Meanwhile, a judge ordered Jason Dalton to undergo a mental competency exam Thursday.

He's charged with murder and attempted murder.
