WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The Sedgwick County sheriff says a deputy who was shot in the eye following a chase is out of the hospital.
KAKE-TV reports Sheriff Jeff Easter said the 33-year-old deputy was released Wednesday from Wesley Medical Center, where he underwent surgery.
The deputy was shot Monday night after a chase that began when he tried to stop a car for traffic violations.
Authorities say the car sped off, and the deputy later found it abandoned near Potwin in Butler County. He was shot while searching for the suspects.
A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper joined the search and shot a male suspect, who remains hospitalized in serious condition. A woman who was also in the car is in custody.
Both suspects are from Gardner.
