ARLINGTON, Texas- A North Texas police officer has been released from a hospital after a bullet grazed his forehead when he was shot by a robbery suspect while trying to serve a warrant.

Arlington police say officer Bryan Graham was back home with his family Wednesday evening after being shot a day earlier.

Graham was shot during an exchange of gunfire Tuesday night at an apartment complex in southern Arlington.

Arlington police say Fort Worth police were serving four aggravated robbery warrants on 23-year-old Alexzander Coan when the suspect barricaded himself into a back room with two women.

Coan was also shot. He died at a local hospital.

Police say a female hostage was rescued from the apartment.

Coan's girlfriend, Jade Simon, is jailed on a kidnapping charge.
