One of the police officers who was gravely injured in a shootout outside a Saanich, B.C. bank in June has been released from the hospital.
The officer, who has not been identified, was discharged from the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria shortly after 2 p.m. on Friday. He will continue to heal at home with his family, the Saanich Police Department said in a news release.
“This officer’s inner strength, determination, and grit continues to inspire all staff at SPD and our community, along with our other injured officer,” said Chief Const. Dean Duthie in the statement.
“We are so very grateful for the extraordinary care, compassion, and professionalism of the medical staff, nurses, doctors, and surgeons at RJH who assisted and guided the healing of our officer to this day.”
