Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter says the deputy who was shot earlier this week has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.
The 33-year-old deputy was shot Monday night after a chase that ended near Potwin in Butler County. A man the car also was shot and is in serious condition. A woman in the car was arrested.
Easter says the deputy tried to stop the car for traffic violations and it sped off, reaching 120 mph. Eventually, the deputy found the car abandoned and was shot as he searched for the suspects.
Several agencies responded to help with the search. A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper eventually shot the man and arrested the woman.
The two suspects are both from Gardner. The sheriff says charges in the case may come as early as today.
