Kingman police detective Dennis Gilbert has been discharged from Kingman Regional Medical Center. Gilbert was released early Wednesday afternoon, six days after he was wounded in a September 29 gun battle that claimed the life of a Kingman citizen.
Spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki said the seventeen year department veteran was resting comfortably at home. The Bullhead City police department continues its independent investigation of the shooting that fatally wounded Jeffrey Cave, 53.
Police Chief Bob Devries thanked the community for an outpouring of support for his staff. The Department endured the death of police K-9 Amigo on August 20, followed by officer-involved fatal shootings of citizens on August 29 and September 29.
