The police officer who was injured during the gurdwara shootout early this month has been discharged from the hospital, while one sikh worshipper remains critically ill even three weeks after the attack.

Lt Brian Murphy was released from the hospital on Wednesday when US First Lady Michelle Obama visited Oak Creek.

"Lt Brian Murphy has been discharged from the hospital. He asks that members of the media respect his request for privacy as he continues to heal from his injuries," the hospital said in a statement.

It said one wounded worshipper, Punjab Singh, remains hospitalised in critical condition.
Murphy was shot multiple times when he tried to save the lives of Sikh worshippers from Wade Michael Page, the lone gunman who went on a rampage killing six people in gurdwara on August 5.

Page later succumbed to self-inflicted injuries, the police said, which is yet to determine the cause of the shootout.
