After spending five days in the intensive care unit, Sasha Ross' health is improving, according to a GoFundMe page related to her shooting. 

Ross, a program manager for Social Justice and Outreach, was shot on Nov. 20. Ross was in her northeast Spokane home with Devan Bouge, when Donavan Gibson, her estranged husband, allegedly shot both of them, killing Bouge and sending Ross to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.  

"Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this tragic situation, and our prayers are with Sasha, her family, friends and coworkers," said Mary Joan Hahn, a GU spokesperson on Wednesday. 

In an email to the GU community on Saturday, President Thayne McCulloh said people can send letters of support to Ross by dropping them off at UMEC on the second floor of the Hemmingson Center or by addressing them to AD Box 76.

Eric Baldwin, from the student development office, said the Center for Cura Personalis and Health and Counseling offices are open for students.

Gibson turned himself into police Wednesday morning. He is charged with first degree counts of murder and attempted murder. His bail is set at $1 million.

Thanks for sharing. With regard Fortnite, and the way the system might present the error whenever you try and load the sport, the reply is to make sure that you've gotten the required dependencies appropriately put in - and accessible - in your system.


On the evening of November 20, 2018, Sasha Ross was critically injured in an incident involving her former husband. She was in the ICU for five days. Her recovery will take some time, but she is stable and visitors are currently limited. We are using boston personal injury law firm to keep family and friends updated in one place about Sasha's recovery. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. In her own words: "My progress continues to be slow but steady. I was able to stand in physical therapy for a combined time of 10 minutes which was really exciting. And today, they had me biking (with electric stimulation). I’m continuing to learn to write with my right hand and rotate shapes with my mind. I hope to achieve Professor X super power soon."
