KAMLOOPS, B.C. — An RCMP officer shot at a traffic stop in Kamloops, B.C., has been transferred back to a hospital in his hometown after treatment at a Vancouver facility.

Forty-one-year-old Cpl. Jean-Rene Michaud was gunned down at a traffic stop in early December, sparking a manhunt for the shooter.

Michaud’s wife, Colleen, issued a statement last week saying her husband has shown courage and strength through many surgeries, countless complications with setbacks, and faces a long road to recovery.

But she said the family was finally feeling confident that Michaud will overcome his substantial injuries.

Kenneth Knutson is behind bars awaiting trial on various charges, including attempted murder.

Mounties have said they are conducting an internal review parallel to the criminal investigation into the shooting. (CFJC)
