The Police Service of Northern Ireland have confirmed that Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell was discharged from hospital on Thursday, April 20, to continue his recovery.
The off-duty police officer was shot four times in front of his young son at Youth Sport Omagh, just off the Killyclogher Road, on February 22.
He had been coaching teenage footballers.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak made a hospital visit to Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell, who sustained life-changing injuries in a gun attack outside Omagh nearly two months ago.
And in a recent speech at a dinner in Hillsborough, the PM discussed the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and his recent hospital visit with DCI Caldwell.
The Prime Minister strongly expressed that Northern Ireland cannot return to its violent history.
“Last week I visited a man who has dedicated himself to building that future, a policeman, a father, a husband, a children’s football coach: DCI John Caldwell,” he said.
“We sat together and talked about the society he loves and about his ordeal. He told me, ‘We can’t go back’.
“We can’t go back. If there is one message from this hall tonight, one message from the people of Northern Ireland to the world, it is surely this: we will never go back. Instead we will learn the lessons of 25 years ago, we will keep working, keep moving forward, bringing everyone with us until we realise in full the future that the people of Northern Ireland deserve.”
The PSNI have asked that John and his family are given privacy and no media interviews will be facilitated by DCI John Caldwell or any of his family at this time.
