Constable Randall Kirk to be released from hospital after Queensland police shooting

·

Australian police officer Constable Randall Kirk is expected to be released from a Queensland hospital soon following surgery.

The 28-year-old was injured during a horrific shooting that killed two other young police officers in Queensland.

“I’m feeling fine, just a little sore,” he said. “My main thoughts are with the other police families at this awful time.”

The young police officer is currently expecting his second child with his wife Breanna next month.

“My wife and I have a young family and would appreciate privacy as we come to terms with this,” Randall said.

He and his fellow colleague Constable Keely Brough were caught up in an ambush by brothers Nathaniel Train and Gareth Train, and Gareth’s partner Stacey at a property in Wiembilla on Monday.

29-year-old Constable Rachel McCrow and 26-year-old Constable Matthew Arnold were both shot dead at the scene.
