MONTZ (AP) — A St. John the Baptist Parish sheriff's deputy hospitalized since an August shoot-out that killed two other deputies is back home in Montz.

Chief Deputy Harold Klibert said Jason Triche returned home on Monday from a Baton Rouge hospital. Klibert says people lined streets to welcome him. The Sheriff's Office had asked residents to turn out in a posting on its Facebook page.

Triche was among three deputies ambushed Aug. 16 at a trailer park where they went to investigate a shooting that had injured another deputy. Both deputies with Triche were killed.

Deputy Michael Scott Boyington, wounded earlier Aug. 16 while working an off-duty security job, was released from a hospital earlier.

Seven people were arrested. One is out on bond. Six remain in jail.
