PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Both Philadelphia police officers wounded in a gunman’s shooting rampage that killed a woman and wounded several other people have been discharged from the hospital.
Dozens of uniformed police officers saluted Sgt. Sylvia Young as she emerged Tuesday from Penn Presbyterian Hospital and left in a vehicle escorted by motorcycle officers.
Authorities say Nicholas Glenn, 25, fired about 18 shots at Young as she sat in her patrol car Friday night, wounding her in the shoulder, arm and torso. They say he then fired into a bar and into a car, killing Sara Salih, and wounded an officer and others before being killed by police.
Police Commissioner Richard Ross says Young has been through an ordeal that not only has scarred her body, but her psychological well being as well.
“It’s important to underscore that and not to forget that. But, she’s got a road ahead of her, but I know she wants to come back which is the biggest thing. And, that’s a testament to her resolve,” Commissioner Ross said.
University of Pennsylvania police officer Ed Miller was discharged Monday, later telling reporters that he’s fine and is primarily concerned about the other victims.
