KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A 14-year-old girl shot in the head during a deadly rampage in southwestern Michigan says one of her goals is to eventually do cartwheels again.

Abigail Kopf told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in a segment broadcast Monday that she’s a “warrior princess.” Vicki Kopf says her daughter can walk, negotiate stairs and move well on her own.

Mary Free Bed Hospital says Abigail was released last week from a rehabilitation center. Abigail spent six weeks at the Grand Rapids facility and a couple of weeks in another hospital following the Feb. 20 rampage that killed six people and injured another woman.

Uber driver Jason Dalton is charged with murder and attempted murder in the apparently random attacks. He faces a May 20 hearing on whether the case goes to trial.
