KDKA-TV: Aerobics instructor recovering after shooting

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Mary Primus suffered gundshot wounds to both her shoulders in the shooting at LA Fitness.
After the shooting at the LA Fitness Center in Collier Township Tuesday night, two of the victims were taken to Allegheny General Hospital for treatment.

An aerobics instructor, Mary Primus, who was teaching the Latin Impact fitness class in the classroom where the shooting happened, was one of those women.

Primus, who is pregnant, suffered gunshot wounds to both of her shoulders.

She said class had just started when she noticed the alleged gunman walk in to her class late.

Primus said she thought he was a maintenance worker.

"I thought maybe he was getting equipment or something. Next thing I know the lights went out, which again is not unusual, that happens sometimes. So we turn around to go and fix the lights and that's when I started hearing bullets," said Primus.
