ELIZABETH, NJ – Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park updated the condition of the two hospitalized Linden police officers injured during the apprehension of Ahmad Khan Rahami on Monday.

According to Park, the officer who was struck by gunfire in his protective vest did not suffer serious injury and was discharged from a local hospital last night. The other injured officer, who was struck in the head by a bullet fragment, was kept in the hospital overnight for observation and is expected to be discharged today.

“We would also like to ask that the media please respect the privacy of these officers and their families as they continue to recover at home,” Park said. ”The entire law enforcement community here in Union County is deeply touched by the immense outpouring of support from across the country for the efforts of all five responding officers, who exhibited tremendous courage in an extremely volatile situation.”
