LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — One of two suburban Denver police officers who were shot over the weekend has been released from the hospital.

Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis said Monday that Officer Jonathan Key is back at home. Officer Kimberly Collins, who was also wounded Saturday night, remains in stable condition at the hospital.

Police say they were shot by 54-year-old Gordon Lee Moench. They say his wife described him as despondent and he immediately fired on the officers who went to his home to check on him.

A third officer who arrived later returned fire and shot Moenxh. Police arrested Moench on Monday when he was released from the hospital. He faces charges including attempted first-degree murder and felony menacing, and could be in court as soon as Tuesday.
