A Central Texas police officer wounded in a deadly gunbattle is out of the hospital as mourners prepare to remember a slain constable.

A spokeswoman at College Station Medical Center said Wednesday that Officer Justin Oehlke (OL'-kee) has been discharged.

Funeral arrangements for Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann are being finalized. Bachmann was killed Monday by gunman Thomas Caffall III while serving an eviction notice near Texas A&M University.

Other officers fatally shot Caffall. A bystander checking some property, Chris Northcliff, was also shot to death.

Oehlke was among three College Station officers and a female bystander who were wounded. The other officers were treated for gun shrapnel and released Monday.

Hospital officials Wednesday did not immediately update the condition of Barbara Holdsworth of Houston, who has a shoulder wound.
