Manley was shot in the face Aug. 10 during a confrontation with a suspect and subsequently underwent two surgeries, Fox News reported.
“Arcadia PD Officer Manley was released today and is expected to make a full recovery!” The Arcadia Police Department wrote Thursday in an Instagram post. “We are so proud of our brother in blue! Get well soon, Kevin!!”
