Three more victims of the mass shooting at the Brooklands Plaza Splash Pad in Rochester Hills have been released from the hospital, bringing the total released to six, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday.

The third is a 30-year-old female who is stable, the Sheriff's Office said.

Three of the victims — a 37-year-old woman, a 77-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman with wounds on her wrist and forearm — were released Monday, according to Sheriff Michael Bouchard's office. Three more — a four-year-old boy, a 42-year-old man and a 31-year-old man — were released Tuesday.
