Pelle, 32, has been recovering for more than two weeks after a bullet collapsed his lung, sliced his liver, and broke his ribs.

Pelle posted on twitter Friday afternoon announcing he was headed home for some “much needed quiet time”.

Pelle was one of four surviving deputies after shooter Matthew Riehl fired more than 100 rounds in his apartment.
