Shooting victim released from hospital

The 43-year-old woman severely injured when she was shot in the head last month was released from Washoe Medical Center in Reno Tuesday.

Lori Ranallette recovered from a wound she received Jan. 25 when an estranged boyfriend broke into her home on the 2700 block of Knox St. and shot her with a .357-caliber handgun. Ranallette quickly lost consciousness and the 36-year-old man, William Orourke, turned the gun on himself.

Ranallette awoke to find Orourke dead on her living room floor.

The two had an ongoing relationship that had recently become violent, according to South Lake Tahoe police.

Orourke lived alone in a cabin across the street from Ranallette and had no children. Ranallette has a son and a daughter who live in South Lake Tahoe.
