The Kenton police officer who was shot during a weekend police chase is out of the hospital. The Lima News reports Skyler Newfer returned home Monday. Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart says the Newfer is doing fine.
Newfer was shot twice as he tried to take cover when 47-year-old Steve Davis allegedly opened fire on officers during a Saturday afternoon police chase. Davis stopped to fire shots at officers several times during the chase, and he was shot several times when police returned fire. He eventually crashed and was found dead in his car.
The incident remains under investigation.
