One of the graduate students, also unidentified, was injured but in stable condition at Boston Medical Center on Tuesday. The third student was unharmed.

Robert Hill, dean of Marsh Chapel, a worship center for the university, reportedly visited the wounded student and said she underwent surgery Monday and Tuesday.

“She is doing well,” Hill said in a statement. “She has her friends around her, and she will soon have family around her.”
