The veteran LAPD officer who was shot in the face and clavicle earlier this month was released from the hospital on Saturday.
Officer Steve Jenkins was shot on April 4 while responding to a domestic violence call in Sylmar. He suffered two gunshot wounds -- one to the right side of his face, the other to his left clavicle. After undergoing several surgeries, he was released in time to spend Easter with his wife and son, who are also in law enforcement.
The suspect in Jenkins' shooting, later identified as Sergio Salazar, was found dead in his home after an 18-hour standoff with police, during which shots were fired. A rifle was found in close proximity to Salazar's body.
Jenkins gave a thumbs-up to media and well-wishers as he left the hospital Saturday.
