NEENAH - A mother who survived a shooting on the Trestle Trail Bridge in Menasha has gone home from the hospital.

Theda Clark Medical Center spokeswoman Megan Schuessler says Erin Stoffel was released from the Neenah hospital late Friday afternoon.

The 32-year-old was critically wounded in the random shooting on the bridge May 3. Her 33-year-old husband, Jon, and 11-year-old daughter, Olivia, lost their lives. 31-year-old Adam Bentdahl, of Appleton, was also killed.

Despite being shot three times, Stoffel was able to get two of her other children to safety. She was let out of the hospital briefly to attend the funeral of her husband and daughter.

The gunman, 27-year-old Sergio Daniel Valencia del Torro, killed himself. Authorities are finishing up an investigation into his background and mental health history.
