A Canadian border guard shot in the neck earlier this month has been released from hospital.
The Customs and Immigration Union said Lori Bowcock is expected to make a full recovery.
On Oct. 16, U.S resident Andrew Michael Crews, 32, deliberately shot the Canadian Border Service Agency officer, before killing himself at the Peace Arch crossing in Surrey, B.C., police said.
In a statement issued last week, Bowcock's family said their “thoughts and prayers” were with the shooter's loved ones.
“Lori acknowledges how difficult this time must be for the family and friends of Andrew Crews. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.”
No motive for the shooting has been determined.
