PITTSBURGH- Officials in western Pennsylvania say the four people still hospitalized after a shooting rampage at a psychiatric in clinic in Pittsburgh remain in fair or good condition.

A spokeswoman for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center says a 35-year-old man is listed in good condition while two other men, ages 46 and 49, and a 65-year-old woman are in fair condition.

Police say 30-year-old John Shick opened fire shortly after entering the lobby of the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic on Thursday afternoon, killing a medical worker and wounding six other people.

Western Psychiatric, which is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, wouldn't say whether Shick was ever a patient there or had any connection to the institution.

Authorities say Shick was killed by University of Pittsburgh police who had trained for a Virginia Tech-style shooting.
