FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A Cumberland County deputy shot in the line of duty is now out of the hospital.

WTVD-TV reported that 25-year-old Joshua LaFave is recovering at home after being seriously injured on July 30.

He was one of four deputies injured in the shooting and was the most seriously hurt.
