Shooter the K-9 dog, the Egg Harbor Township police dog injured last week in a shooting incident, has been released from the hospital, according to police.

Shooter was wounded by gunfire during a manhunt for Donald Capriotti, a career criminal who fled during a police stop on the Black Horse Pike and lead police on a foot chase through the swamps of West Atlantic City.

Capriotti has already served a prison sentence for manslaughter. He was also arrested in June after authorities found drugs and weapons inside his Egg Harbor Township home.

The police canine, Shooter, was taken to an animal hospital in Red Bank, New Jersey after being shot in the neck.

Capriotti was also shot several times by police and was listed in critical condition at Atlantic Care Regional Medical Center.

Shooter,  a 6-year-old Dutch Shepherd, was certified for patrol work in 2011 and is a 3- year member of the EHT Police force.  His partner is Lt. Mike Bordonaro.

Police say Shooter is now officially retired from the K-9 force and will continue to recover at an undisclosed location.
