The Sedgwick County sheriff says a deputy who was shot in the eye following a chase is out of the hospital.

Sheriff Jeff Easter said the 33-year-old deputy was released Wednesday from Wesley Medical Center, where he underwent surgery.

The deputy was shot Monday night after a chase that began when he tried to stop a car for traffic violations.

Authorities say the car sped off, and the deputy later found it abandoned near Potwin in Butler County. He was shot while searching for the suspects.

A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper joined the search and shot a male suspect, who remains hospitalized in serious condition. A woman who was also in the car is in custody.

Both suspects are from Gardner.
