EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The condition of the only surviving victim in a Pickens County shooting has been upgraded again, according to hospital officials.

A Greenville Health System spokesperson said 34-year-old Michael Simpson's condition was upgraded from critical to serious condition on Monday then to fair on Tuesday.

Warrants from the Pickens County Sheriff's Office said Simpson was shot in the head in the early morning hours of May 14 by his wife, 35-year-old Susanna Simpson.

Deputies said Susanna Simpson also shot and killed her two children, 5-year-old Sawyer Simpson, and 7-year-old Carly Simpson at their Cherokee Trail home. Authorities said the children died from multiple gunshot wounds.

According to the warrants, Suzanna Simpson told an emergency room nurse she shot her family and tried to shoot herself but could not do it.

Michael Simpson has remained in the hospital since the shooting. His wife was booked into jail on May 20 and will likely appear in court for her first hearing in less than 45 days, according to the solicitor's office.
