- The second of two Chandler police officers wounded in a shooting at a Wal-Mart store last weekend has been discharged from the hospital.

Officer Joshua Pueblo was released Friday from Chandler Regional Medical Center two days after he was moved from an intensive-care unit after a second surgery.

The other officer wounded April 23 was 28-year-old Daniel Colwell. He was less severely wounded and was previously released from the hospital.

Police have said 24-year-old Mitchell Oakley was killed after opening fire at the officers. They were responding to a call about a trespasser.

A Wal-Mart employee called police after recognizing Oakley as having been ejected from the store in the past.
