Pastor Tim Remington, shot March 6 in the parking lot of his Coeur d’Alene church, headed home from the hospital Tuesday after being treated for a blood clot in the lungs.
Remington, who was shot eight times after Sunday morning services, had been released from Kootenai Health on March 24 but was readmitted last week after suffering a minor stroke, according to John Padula, outreach pastor at Altar Church.
The stroke had affected the muscles in Remington’s left arm, leading to discovery of the blood clot, Padula said Tuesday. “He’s doing well.”
The church community is eager to see Remington recover and return to his post, he added.
“We miss him. We can definitely feel that he’s gone,” Padula said. “It bothers us, obviously, that he’s in so much pain and going through the things that he’s going through.”
Kyle Andrew Odom, 30, faces a charge of attempted murder in the shooting. Odom, who was arrested in Washington, D.C., is scheduled to appear in court there Wednesday morning for an extradition hearing.
