Last week, Owensboro police officer Zach Morris responded to a call about a suspect in the Hathaway Street area possibly breaking into vehicles.

Officer Morris chased the suspect but lost him and then returned to 522 Hathaway, where he was shot by the homeowner, who mistook Morris for a prowler.

Earlier today, the Owensboro Police Department posted an update on Officer Morris' condition:

We're all very thankful for Officer Morris and all those who serve our city and we thank them for their bravery.
