Officer Laboy Continues Recovery Process

The next fundraiser for the injured Alexandria police officer will be held April 21 in Kingstowne.

Alexandria Police Officer Peter Laboy continues to make progress recovering from gunshot wounds.

His wife Suzi Laboy wrote in an online journal this week that Peter was able to come home for the day.

“He came home and we had a great day. The kids were so excited to see him as he sat on the couch and watched golf. He now realizes we are in Washington DC," she wrote. "He had a good piece of steak for dinner, thanks to Tammy. It's the most I have seen him eat in 6 weeks. Thanks to Victor and Brian for getting him home and taking him back. It won't be long he will be home for good.”

On Tuesday, she wrote she was saddened to see so many others suffering with loss. “It brings me back to the here and now,” she wrote.
