OSHAWA, Ont. -- The woman who survived the recent mass shooting of her family in Oshawa, Ont., is thanking supporters, first responders and the medical workers aiding her recovery.
In a statement issued through the Durham Regional Police Service, Loretta Traynor says her family is "profoundly grateful" for the support they've received in the past week.
Traynor's husband, Chris, and three of the couple's children were shot dead in the family's home in the early hours of last Friday.
Loretta Traynor was wounded in the attack and the couple's fourth child, Sam, was not home and is now by his mother's side.
