Garret Osilka Loveland P.D.

The Loveland police officer wounded in a traffic stop shooting last weekend was released from the hospital Friday evening. Few details of his injuries have been released, but 7 News reported Garret Osilka was shot in the chest.

Officer Osilka’s family said he continues to improve every day and released this:

We are completely overwhelmed at the outpouring of love, support, and generosity, from our family, friends and community during this horrific event. We don’t know where or how to begin to say, “Thank you!” We are eternally thankful to God for granting us such a miracle. Garret continues to improve every day and we are praying for a full recovery.

Thank you for respecting our privacy to this point. Like most of you, our home is our castle and our refuge. We ask that when Garret is well enough to return home that you continue to respect our privacy.
