A Wyandotte County sheriff’s deputy shot during a convenience store robbery earlier this month was released from the hospital Thursday.
Armed robbers shot Scott Wood multiple times March 4 after storming into the Kansas City, Kan., store where Wood had stopped after getting off work.
“We are delighted and encouraged by the great medical progress Scott has made,” Wyandotte County Sheriff Don Ash said in a written statement.
Michael Moncure, the doctor who heads the trauma unit at the University of Kansas Hospital, said that Wood has made “great progress” but that he and his family still have work ahead.
“Now it is time for rest, rehabilitation, therapy and time to take him the rest of the way,” Moncure said in a written statement.
The police investigation into the shooting is continuing. Three men described by authorities as persons of interest are being held on charges stemming from another armed robbery.
