MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis police officer who was shot and wounded over the weekend has been released from the hospital.

Officer Jordan Davis and his partner responded to a burglary call in north Minneapolis Saturday. Davis was shot while standing outside his squad car. He was taken to North Memorial Medical Center by his partner. Medical Center spokeswoman Lisa Bader said Monday Davis has been discharged.

Police Chief Janee Harteau says an officer was targeted in the shooting and this officer just happened to be the one who was there. Police arrested a 43-year-old man for the burglary, but so far have declined to say whether he is a suspect in the shooting.
