WASHINGTON — An Anne Arundel County police officer was released from the hospital Tuesday after he was shot at a 7-Eleven earlier this month.
Cpl. Larry Adams was shot at a 7-Eleven located at 720 East College Parkway early April 10.
Police say Adams was at the 7-Eleven around 2 a.m. when a witness told him there was a suspicious person outside. It’s not clear if Adams interrupted a robbery, but police say he and the suspect struggled outside the 7-Eleven and Adams was shot.
Adams, who was hospitalized at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore, was released Tuesday, according to an Anne Arundel County Police Department Facebook post.
“He has a long road to recovery in front of him, but he is very thankful of all of the support he has received from the community,” the police said in the Facebook post.
