KENOSHA, Wis. — A Kenosha police officer wounded in a shootout last week while investigating a vehicle break-in has been released from a hospital, Wisconsin Department of Justice officials said Friday.
A release by the department's Division of Criminal Investigation identified the officer as Justin Pruett, who has been with the Kenosha police force for two years. He suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen, the Kenosha News reported.
The suspect, Jonathan Massey, was arrested Tuesday in Gary, Indiana. Massey, 29, waived extradition during a court hearing Friday morning and is expected to be returned to Kenosha within 14 days to face charges.
Police said earlier they expect to charge Massey with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, being a felon in possession of a firearm and bail jumping.
