Kelly was shot in November during traffic stop.

FOUNTAIN HILL, Pa. - Just days after getting out of an Intensive Care Unit, Pennsylvania State Police Corporal Seth Kelly was released from the hospital Friday afternoon per state police.

Cpl. Seth Kelly was moved from the ICU at St. Luke's University Hospital in Fountain Hill on Wednesday, according to Capt. Richard D'Ambrosio with the Bethlehem barracks.

D'Ambrosio said Kelly "has a long road ahead of him," but that he's improving everyday.
