Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Seth Kelly, Shot During Traffic Stop, Discharged From Hospital

State Police welcome holiday well wishes for Cpl. Seth Kelly as he continues to recover.

A Pennsylvania State Police corporal shot during a traffic stop is out of the hospital as he continues to recover.

Cpl. Seth Kelly, who was critically injured in a roadside confrontation last month, spent nearly a month being treated at St. Luke's University Hospital.

State police announced Monday that Kelly had been released from the hospital.

"Our sincere thanks to all of the doctors, nurses and staff who have aided in his recovery over the past month," police wrote on Facebook.

Officials say Kelly, a 13-year veteran, was helping another trooper arrest a man they suspected of driving under the influence of drugs when a fight broke out Nov. 7. Kelly was shot in the neck, shoulder area and leg during the fight.

The suspect, 22-year-old Daniel Clary, was shot several times and hospitalized. He has since been released into police custody.

Clary is facing charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault.

State police continue to encourage anyone wanting to send holiday wishes to Kelly to do so at Cards for Corporal Kelly, c/o PA State Police, 654 Bangor Road, Nazareth, PA 18064.
