A Laramie County Sheriff’s Deputy who was shot on Saturday in an incident on Miles Court in northeast Cheyenne has been sent home from the hospital, according to an official with the sheriff’s office.

Captain Don Hollingshead posted the following comments on Facebook on Wednesday:

“Update on the LCSO Deputy, he was released and is home! There were several friends and family surrounding him as he left the hospital. Thank you everyone for your prayers and well wishes,”

Hollingshead says the deputy was released on Tuesday and is expected to make a full recovery.

The deputy, whose name has not been released, was shot on Saturday, and a suspect later identified as 31-year-old Rance Tillman of Cheyenne, was killed. According to a release from the sheriff’s office, the incident began when Tillman was contacted by deputies in the Cahill Park area about a previous assault at Laramie County Community College.

A low-speed chase ensued, leading to the shootout on Miles Court in which Tillman was killed and the deputy was wounded. The incident is being investigated by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
