WASHINGTON -

Metropolitan Police Department Officer Scott Williams was shot multiple times in the legs but survived.

After visiting Williams, Police Chief Cathy Lanier said he has some "pretty serious injuries" and is "pretty uncomfortable" but "in good spirits."

Williams is an officer in the K9 division. He underwent surgery Monday, and before he did, he wanted to call his mother, according to Janis Orlowski, the chief medical officer of MedStar Washington Hospital Center where the officer was recovering Wednesday in good condition.

Orlowski initially said Williams had bone and blood vessel damage and there was "concern" about whether he would be able to walk again. But she said Williams, who she estimated to be in his late 40s, was in fair and stable condition.

Lanier also said she was sure Williams would walk again.

"I'm real confident that he not only will walk again but probably will outrun most of us once again," she said.
