The last officer injured in Monday's deadly Greenwich Village shoot-out was released from a Manhattan hospital Wednesday.

Detective Mario Muniz was cheered on by his co-workers as he left Bellevue Hospital in a wheelchair.

Muniz was shot in the lower stomach below his bulletproof vest while trying to arrest Charles Mozdir, an alleged child molester.

He was injured in the shoot-out along with two federal marshals.

Officer Ryan Westfield was shot in the leg and Officer Pat Lin was hit in the elbow.

Both marshals have already been released from the hospital.

The three men were all shot while trying to take Mozdir into custody.

Mozdir was killed in the gun battle.

He was wanted in California on a molestation charge.
