OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department says Officer Jeffrey Wittstruck is now out of the hospital and recovering at home.
Officer Wittstruck was shot in the face and head while responding to a shoplifting call at Westroads Mall on Friday afternoon.
Earlier this week at a court appearance for the accused shooter, prosecutors said Officer Wittstruck could face long-term damage and may need additional surgery.
The Nebraska State Patrol arrested the suspect after a high speed chase that ended in Lancaster County.
A judge set bond for Kenya Jenkins, 21, at $10 million. He's charged with first-degree assault on an officer.
