A campus officer who fatally shot a sword-wielding man has left the hospital, after receiving treatment for a severed finger, reports the Denver Post.
The officer was attacked at 6 a.m. Saturday on the Auraria Campus near the Tivoli Student Center. He opened fire after the man refused to obey orders and swung the sword.
The Medical Examiner's office is still attempting to identify the man.

I previously worked for Univ. of Co. Campus P.D. when attending Med. School after working for Co. Springs P.D. for a few years. these officers are often understaffed and many haven't even attended the Academy yet. Condolences to the Officer re. his injury and for having to take a life, something we all wish we could avoid. A 'good shoot' but no one wins herein.
