The Houston mother who survived the mass shooting in College Station is in critical condition at St. Joseph Hospital, according to friends of the family.
Barbara Holdsworth was shot when 35-year-old Thomas Caffall opened fire on Brazos County Constables near the intersection of Fidelity and Highland Monday. Constables had gone to Caffall's home on the 200 block Fidelity to serve an eviction notice.
Holdsworth was moving her daughter, a Texas A&M student, from a house on Highland to another house in College Station when the shoot out started. Holdsworth was shot three times, twice in the back and once in the chest.
"Barbara is still in critical condition in ICU but she is stable and doing well," said a friend of the family.
Trauma doctors in the emergency room worked on Holdsworth for 45 minutes before she went into surgery Monday.
Holdsworth is surrounded by friends and family at St. Joseph Hospital.
