Wyoming — Authorities say a police officer who was shot while responding to a domestic dispute in western Michigan has been released from the hospital.

Wyoming police Chief James Carmody says the officer returned home to his family Thursday night after undergoing surgery at Mercy Health St. Mary’s.

Carmody says officers were responding to a domestic dispute in the Grand Rapids suburb Thursday afternoon when a man in his 30s shot the officer. Carmody says the shooter fled, firing as he ran through the neighborhood. The chief says officers returned fire, striking the suspect.

Carmody says the suspect was seriously injured, and Grand Rapids and state police were guarding him at a hospital.

The newspaper says one of the suspect’s shots entered a home and caused minor injuries to a resident.
