People pause after dropping off flowers Monday, Oct. 29, 2018 near memorials dedicated to the 11 people who were shot and killed at the Tree of Life Congregation in Squirrel Hill on Saturday.

A man critically injured in the Oct. 27 shooting at a Squirrel Hill synagogue has moved to a rehabilitation facility, hospital officials said.

Daniel Leger, 70, is now receiving care at a UPMC inpatient rehabilitation unit, the health system Tweeted last week.

Leger suffered critical gunshot injuries to his chest in the shooting during Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue, where three congregations meet.

Pittsburgh police officer and SWAT operator Timothy Matson remains hospitalized and in stable condition, according to UPMC. He was shot multiple times in a gun battle with accused gunman Robert Bowers on the third floor of the synagogue.

Three other Pittsburgh police officers were injured in the massacre. All three have been released.

Another civilian, Andrea Wedner, 61, was released from UPMC Presbyterian on Nov. 8. She was shot in the arm. Her mother, 97-year-old Rose Mallinger, was among the 11 killed in the shooting.
