Wounded Baton Rouge officer released
BATON ROUGE, La. — Baton Rouge police Cpl. Myron Daniels, the officer shot in the abdomen during a shootout June 20, was released from the hospital Wednesday, police Department spokesman Sgt. Don Kelly said Thursday.
Daniels, 34, a training officer with the Police Department, and Cpl. Brannon Ogden, 28, a uniform patrol officer, were both shot on June 20 at the Suburban Apartments, 6515 Hanks, after a pursuit of an armed suspect.
Ogden was treated and released that night for a gunshot wound to the arm, but Daniels went through surgeries and was placed in intensive care while he recovered. He was released Wednesday but will continue to recover at home.
