Wounded Tucson policeman is released from hospital

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson police officer has been released from the
hospital four weeks after being shot in the head while responding to a burglary
call.

Tucson police say Sgt. Robert Carpenter was discharged from the hospital
Wednesday.

They say the 12-year veteran will continue outpatient physical therapy and
rehabilitation with the goal of returning to work within six months.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that police officials say
the bullet remains lodged in Carpenter’s brain

The 46-year-old Carpenter and other officers were responding to a midtown
burglary call on Nov. 18 when he was struck in the head by a bullet.

A suspect was arrested in connection with the break-in, but hasn’t been charged
in the shooting.
