Hospital personnel lined up at an exit from the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center downtown to greet Shiflett as he was released.
Shiflett was seated in the passenger’s seat of a car, and police officers leaned in to wish him well, as the car was escorted by police.
Shiflett’s shift was ending last Monday morning when police began receiving calls of an active shooter at a North Baltimore methadone clinic. Shiflett was among the officers who went inside the Man Alive clinic and were met with gunfire.
During an exchange of gunfire between police and suspect Ashanti Pinkney, Shiflett was hit in the abdomen, according to police. Officer Christopher Miller dragged Shiflett to safety, police said.
