MSP sergeant shot in the line of duty welcomed home in Monroe County

Monroe County, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) - A Michigan State Police sergeant who was shot multiple times in the line of duty has returned home to Monroe County.

Detective Sgt. Devin Kachar was released from rehabilitation Thursday. He was met by hundreds of residents and law enforcement officers who lined the streets celebrating his return home. 

Authorities say Kachar was shot on Sept. 27 while undercover with the Metro Narcotics Enforcement Team. The 10-year veteran of MSP was listed in critical condition shortly after the shooting. He was updated to stable condition later that day.
