SAN DIEGO – Sports anchor Kyle Kraska was released from the hospital Wednesday, eight days after he was ambushed outside his Scripps Ranch home, colleagues said.

CBS8 published a statement from Kraska about his gratitude to the community for their support.  The statement in part explained what he has endured over the last week:

“After awakening from a four-day medically-induced coma, I have begun the long process of healing…I am happy to report the remarkable news that I was released from the hospital today and now my fight will continue from home with my family. Thank you for lifting me up on your shoulders when I needed you most. I have been proud to serve you for the past 15 and a half years and look forward to re-joining my KFMB family as soon as I can.”

Kraska, 48, was ambushed in his driveway on Avonette Court shortly after 3 p.m. February 10 and later underwent several surgeries at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, according to police and CBS8.

Meanwhile, 54-year-old Mike Montana faced a judge Tuesday on suspicion of shooting Kraska. He plead not guilty to premeditated attempted murder and other charges. The judge ordered Montana to be held on $750,000 bail.

Deputy District Attorney Rebecca Zipp alleged Montana — who did painting work on the sportscaster’s house and was involved in a financial dispute over the job — shot Kraska six times from several feet away, including twice in the upper body, with the intent to kill.
