Morningside Volunteer Firefighter Kevin Swain, 19 years of age, continues to show signs of  improvement.  While still hospitalized at the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore he has been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit and into a private room.

Kevin sustained four gunshot wounds while answering a 911 call on Sharon Road in Temple Hills on Friday evening.  Fire Fighter/Medic John "Skillet" Ulmschneider also was shot and did not survive his injuries.

Kevin has a constant vigil of co-workers at his bedside as well as family members and friends.  Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc Bashoor spent some time with Kevin and his family this afternoon.
