Last of 3 Wounded Laredo Officers Discharged from Hospital

The last of three South Texas police officers wounded during a shootout this month that left a murder suspect dead has been released from a hospital.

A Laredo police statement said Officer Agapito (ah-guh-PEE'-toh) Perez was discharged Monday.

Investigators said three police officers were shot during a June 2 confrontation with Antonio Geraldo Rodriguez in a Laredo convenience store parking lot. Police were searching for Rodriguez since hours earlier finding his girlfriend slain at a residence.

A murder warrant had been issued for Rodriguez, who previously served time for a Houston slaying.

All three wounded Laredo officers were transported to San Antonio hospitals. Two officers with less serious injuries than Perez spent a couple of days hospitalized.
