Allen Outlets shooting victims: What we know

A security guard, an engineer, parents and their young son, two elementary school sisters who loved the color yellow. We are learning more about the people who were killed at the outdoor mall on Saturday.

Extended family members say that William is "home and continuing to do well."

Cho's story has tugged on heartstrings across the country and around the world.

A GoFundMe page for the Cho's had raised over $1.8 million, with donations from more than 36,000 people, including Arizona Cardinals QB and Allen High School grad Kyler Murray.

William's family says that they are going to close the GoFundMe to new donations, but they say, "if anyone wishes to continue their support we strongly urge you to consider donating to the GoFundMe pages of the other families affected by this tragedy."

The family says they will eventually set up a trust for William which can be contributed to, but they do not have information on it at this time.

A private funeral for Cindy, Kyu and James Cho will be held on Thursday night.

8 people were killed, and at least 9 others were injured in the shooting this Saturday.

Medical City also says that it no longer has any patients from the shooting in critical condition. As of Sunday morning, there were 3 patients in critical condition.

Medical City McKinney is treating three patients in fair condition and one patient in good condition. Medical City Plano is treating one patient in good condition as well.
