The rookie police officer injured by multiple gunshots in Brooklyn Wednesday is home recovering.
Officer James Li was released from Kings County Hospital Friday.
Police say Li and his partner pulled two men off the B46 bus at Utica Avenue and Empire Boulevard Wednesday for fare-beating.
That's when police say 28-year-old Rashaun Robinson opened fire on both officers--hitting Li in the legs and groin.
"Officer Li, we hope is at this very moment, leaving the hospital in Brooklyn," said Police Commissioner William Bratton. "Still in a great deal of pain and discomfort, but hopefully going home now to recover fully from his wounds and return to duty as a New York City police officer. Needless to say, we wish him very, very well."
Robinson was arrested soon after the shooting.
He faces multiple counts of attempted murder, along with charges of assault on a police officer and criminal weapons possession.
