The Willimantic police officer shot in the arm while performing a well-being check earlier this week was released from a local hospital late Friday morning.
Officer Kevin Winkler was released from Windham Memorial Hospital after being admitted when police said 34-year-old Andrew Samoulis opened fire and took off.
He was caught hours later.
Samoulis is in jail and now faces a slew of charges including assaulting a police officer.
