TEMPLE, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas meteorologist who was shot earlier this month outside his television station has been released from a hospital.

Patrick Crawford was treated for three gunshot wounds: one to his abdomen and two others from shots that grazed him, including one to the head. He was treated at a hospital in Temple, about 65 miles north of Austin.

KCEN-TV News Director Jim Hice confirmed Monday that Crawford had been discharged from the hospital.

Crawford, the morning weathercaster at KCEN, near Waco, was shot Dec. 17 in the station parking lot.

Crawford has said he didn't know his attacker and that he didn't interact with the person before he was shot. The unknown suspect fled on foot.

No arrests have been made and the motive remains under investigation.
