Florence County Sheriff's deputies Arie Davis and Sarah Miller were released from Carolinas Hospital System Friday after being there for 16 days after they were shot back on Oct. 3 in the line of duty.

Seven officers were shot. Florence Police Sgt. Terrence Carraway died in the shooting.

Dozens of law enforcement officers from across the county gave the deputies a special escort as they're heading to a rehabilitation center for further recovery.

Davis' father said his daughter's leg was badly wounded in the shooting. He said doctors initially told them they would have to amputate her leg, but they were able to save it.

We're told Miller is coming right along and has started physical therapy this week.

Deputies said she has a long road ahead of her, but is seeing lots of improvements.

Florence County Sheriff's Investigator Farrah Turner remains in critical condition at the hospital. She's had at least seven surgeries, according to her family members.

Florence Police Sgt. Scott Williamson is recovering at a medical facility in Georgia for additional treatment, according to Lt. Mike Brandt with Florence police.
