Cpl. Kelly listed in stable condition after shooting

Suspect Daniel Clary is also stable

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Cpl. Seth Kelly's condition has been upgraded to stable, according to Pennsylvania State Police Corporal Adam Reed.

St. Luke's Anderson Campus changed its outside lights to blue to show support for the Pennsylvania State Police in the aftermath of the incident.

Police say after 22-year-old Daniel Clary shot him Tuesday morning during what was first a simple traffic stop, Kelly acted fast and grabbed the tourniquet from his belt and wrapped one of his several wounds. 

Clary was also wounded after Kelly and his partner, trooper Ryan Seiple, fired back. Clary, still able to drive, got himself to Easton Hospital where he told workers right away he 'was in a shooting involving a state trooper.'

Clary underwent surgery after he was transferred to Lehigh Valley Hospital - Cedar Crest. He is also listed in stable condition, per Lehigh Valley Health Network. 

Clary is faced with charges that include attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault.
