Officer wounded in shoot-out heads home

Nearly two months after he was shot while pursuing the alleged Boston Marathon bombers, Officer Richard Donohue Jr. of the MBTA Transit Police was finally sent home from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Friday, but he does not know when he will return to work.

Donohue, 33, said he hopes to return to his job as soon as he is medically able. His wife, Kim, said she knows his return to law enforcement will be challenging for her.
