Portland, Ore. — Deputy Chuck Dozé has been discharged from the hospital and is now at home, where he will continue his recovery and rehabilitation. His hospital stay lasted for 13 days, and upon release, he was accompanied by his family and received a law enforcement escort.

Deputy Dozé sustained seven gunshot wounds on July 26. His body armor stopped three bullets, while he was hit in both arms and twice in the head. The injuries resulted in the loss of his left eye, multiple teeth, and fractures in both arms.

During Deputy Dozé’s release, Beaverton, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Sherwood, and Tigard police departments covered service calls, allowing local deputies to participate.
