Oregon injured trooper

An Oregon State Police trooper who was shot several times during a Christmas night shooting is out of the hospital.  Oregon State Police said in an email Sunday that Trooper Nic Cederberg has returned home. Cederberg is an Army veteran and seven-year veteran of the department.  Cederberg’s wife, Hayley Shelton, said in a Facebook post that they returned home Friday after 48 days in the hospital.  While they have a long road ahead, she says she is confident her husband will face the next recovery phase with determination, strength and a positive attitude.  Authorities say the trooper was shot Dec. 25 by homicide suspect James Tylka following a car chase.  Tylka was then killed by police.  Officers pursued Tylka after finding his estranged wife dead outside his suburban Portland home.
