A New York state trooper who was shot and injured while responding to a call June 13 in the Village of Deposit has been released from the hospital.


Trooper Ryan Thorp was shot in the arm after responding to a reported domestic dispute shortly after 9 p.m. on Sunrise Terrace in Deposit, about 31 miles east of Binghamton.


Thorp underwent surgery later that night at UHS Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City. He was released from the hospital Wednesday and will continue care at home, state police said.


The man accused of shooting Thorp, Scott A. Mawhiney, 44, of Deposit, was taken into custody at the scene a short time after the incident.



Mawhiney was arraigned on a charge of first-degree attempted murder and remains incarcerated at the Broome County Jail without bail.


He could face 20 years to life in prison if found guilty.


Thorp is a three-year veteran of the state police and is stationed at the Deposit barracks.
