Pocatello Police Chief Roger Schei is excited to announce Officer Demetrius Amos was released from the hospital today, May 11, and will continue his recovery at home with his family.
Chief Schei also added that Officer Demetrius Amos had an additional injury not mentioned before. A bullet struck his left hand near his fingers. At this time, it is unclear if the injury occurred from a separate shot or one of the two known shots that hit Amos.
“This incident is a realization of how dangerous this job really is,” said Schei. “We’re so pleased both officers are doing well enough to be home with their families.”
