Deputy Wounded In Line Of Duty Returns Home
WASHINGTON COUNTY (KFSM) — A sheriff’s deputy who was shot while responding to a suicidal call more than three weeks has returned home.
Lt. Ti Augustine was released from rehab Thursday (April 7) from the hospital, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
He was shot in the leg with a shotgun on March 15 by Raymond Plumlee, police stated, after the suspect’s mother woman had reported that her son was suicidal and psychotic.
The sheriff’s office posted the following note from Augustine:
“I GET TO GO HOME TODAY! My road to recovery will be long but I can’t wait to get back to work. I love my job, and more importantly, the people I work with.
We are truly blessed and undeserving of the outpouring of support we have received. So many have done so much that I can’t begin to name folks, because I’m sure I would leave many out. We covet your prayers and thank you all for everything that you have done.
We love you all and know that this is all possible only through God’s grace. He gets the glory and praise! It has happened because of your prayers, and prayers work!”
