EAST MEADOW - Officials say a Nassau County police officer shot during a struggle in East Meadow was released from Nassau University Medical Center today.

The unidentified officer was shot in the leg Friday in a shopping center parking lot.

The officer was checking out a parked car because a man inside was allegedly acting suspiciously.

Police say the suspect, Dwayne Oxley, tried to grab the officer's gun, which then went off. Oxley was shot to death by another officer.
