DOVER, Del. – Delaware State Police said the trooper who was shot Wednesday morning has been released from the hospital.

According to police, Corporal Lloyd M. McCann was released Thursday evening from the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center. He is now recovering at home.

Police said McCann was chasing Dennis Hicks, 29, by car because he was wanted in connection to a domestic strangulation incident that happened earlier that morning.

Hicks eventually stopped and got out of the car holding a gun. Police said Hicks opened fire and McCann fired back.

Both were taken to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital. Hicks was pronounced dead. McCann was transferred to Christiana Hospital, admitted in serious but stable condition.

McCann has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
