MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A man accused of killing a police officer during a Memphis drug raid is behind bars after being released from a local hospital.

The Commercial Appeal reports 21-year-old Treveno Campbell was released from the Regional Medical Center at Memphis on Monday.

Officer Martoiya Lang was fatally shot and Officer William Vrooman received a leg wound when they executed a search warrant on Dec. 14.

Police say Campbell fired at the officers as they pursued 26-year-old Willie Braddock into a bedroom. The officers returned fire, wounding Campbell, who is charged with murder and attempted murder and has a Jan. 3 court date.

Braddock is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 2 to face drug charges. He is currently free on $40,000 bond.
