ALLIANCE, Neb. (AP) _ A Nebraska state trooper shot during a standoff at a drugstore in the Panhandle has left a hospital.
Trooper Tim Flick is the last of four people wounded during the standoff to leave Box Butte General Hospital in Alliance.
Hospital spokeswoman Bonnie Wallace says Flick was released over the weekend.
A hostage shot as he escaped on June 12, 62-year-old Charles Lierk, and 43-year-old Alliance police officer Kirk Felker were released Thursday. Alliance
officer Matt Shannon was treated at the hospital and released the day of the shootings.
The 14-hour standoff began when 27-year-old Andres Gonzalez tried to rob Thiele Pharmacy & Gifts.
Gonzalez died after a shootout with officers. Officers found his father dead at home earlier that day.
