Deputy leaves hospital to see son's football game
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) -- A Canyon County sheriff's deputy who was shot several times while trying to apprehend a suspect in an aggravated assault case left the hospital with a police motorcade escort to attend his son's football game.
The Idaho Press Tribune reports that the deputy left Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise on Saturday to watch the game at Nampa High School. The deputy's name hasn't been released.
Deputies were pursuing 27-year-old Kyle Alan Batt of Caldwell late Tuesday when he reportedly fired multiple shots and hit two deputies. The second deputy was treated for minor injuries and released.
Officers say Batt shot himself after a SWAT team found him hiding in a garage. He is hospitalized, but his condition has not been released.
