ROSWELL, N.M. -- The 13-year-old girl injured in a school shooting in Roswell has returned home, according to a family friend.

Kendal Sanders was shot in the arm when New Mexico State Police said the 12-year-old suspect, Mason Campbell, opened fire in the Berrendo Middle School gymnasium on Tuesday.

Sanders was airlifted to a Lubbock, Texas, hospital after the incident and underwent surgery. She was listed in satisfactory condition by the end of the week. 

A friend of the Sanders family confirmed to KOB Eyewitness News 4 on Monday morning that Kendal was home.

The other shooting victim, 12-year-old Nathaniel Tavarez, remains in critical but stable condition at the University Medical Center in Lubbock. His uncle told KOB that Nathaniel is breathing on his own.
