VANCOUVER - Family members of a guard shot in her booth at a busy Canada-U.S. border crossing say they are grateful for the outpouring of support.

The family of Lori Bowcock says in a statement that she is doing well, has retained her sense of humour and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Bowcock family also extended their condolences to the family and friends of Andrew Crews, who killed himself immediately after shooting Bowcock in the neck.

Bowcock's family says Lori had always dreamed of a career in law enforcement and they are deeply moved by the cards, flowers and letters that have poured in from colleagues, Surrey's mayor, the Ontario Provincial Police and the border agencies in Canada and the U.S.

RCMP say there's nothing to indicate that Bowcock was specifically targeted.

Crews was living in Washington and his stepfather says he sent his mother a text before the shooting to say he loved her and was sorry.
