A Connecticut police captain who was shot when he intervened in a deadly shooting went back to work Thursday after five months of recuperation.

New Haven Capt. Anthony Duff thanked his colleagues and residents for their support during the department’s weekly meeting to share information with community partners, the New Haven Register reported.

Duff, a 24-year veteran, was off duty and out of uniform on Aug. 12 when he was shot three times while attempting to intervene in the killing that remains unsolved.

Duff radioed to dispatchers to request backup and report he was wounded.

Duff said the experience of being shot and recovering has increased his appreciation for those in his line of work and the kindness of strangers.

Chief Otoniel Reyes said the department was grateful for Duff’s return and wished him continued health.
