Associated Press

May 09, 2011

FOND DU LAC, Wis.— A Fond du Lac police officer wounded in a March shooting is set to return to work Monday.

Officer Ryan Williams will begin with limited duty. He will be re-evaluated in June

Williams was shot twice by a sexual assault suspect who killed another officer. The suspect eventually committed suicide.

A bullet ripped into the abdomen of Williams’ police dog, Grendel, while the dog was sitting in a squad car.

Lt. Aaron Goldstein tells The Reporter (http://bit.ly/keR0AY) that police have a training program for the wounded dog.

Fond du Lac Police Officer Craig Birkholz was killed by the gunman. Williams was critically wounded.

    Welcome home Ryan. Just take it slow and easy my brother and ease back into the job. You have been through hell and it is going to take some time before it starts to 'feel right' again. His brothers and sisters up their need to make sure that they are there for him but also not to crowd him.
