A Cleveland police officer who was shot in the arm and leg during a foot chase involving four unidentified men last week has been discharged from the hospital.
Officer Mark Bakhriychuk was released Friday and is recuperating at home, according to the Cleveland Police Patrol Association.
Bakhriychuk was wounded on March 14 while investigating Kia thefts when he and another officer approached what they believed was a stolen Kia, just as four passengers jumped out of the car and fled.
