DENVER (AP) - A Douglas County sheriff’s detective who was shot in the chest after arriving at a home to check on a suicidal man has been released from the hospital.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/NuUWWo ) Dan Brite was released Thursday, but doctors say he still faces months of recovery.

Brite, a father and former Marine, was critically wounded in a shootout in Parker on Sept. 2 with 40-year-old Randall Rodick, who fled in an RV through a field and fired at police.

Rodick was shot and killed by another officer after the suspect turned his gun toward people at a hospital complex.

Brite and his wife, Christine, released a statement Thursday saying that since the shooting “we have seen goodness, kindness and love in ways we never could have imagined.”
