CLEVELAND (WJW)– An injured Cleveland police officer was released from the hospital Wednesday morning.
A procession of police cars escorted 26-year-old Officer Jennifer Kilnapp from University Hospitals. She said she was still in some pain, but she’s happy to be going home.

A woman told officers she got into an altercation with a man, who was inside the house. Police said they found the man in the bathroom, where he pointed a gun at them and started firing.
The officer suffered gunshot wounds in her arm and back.
