Shot Alexandria officer moves to rehab hospital

The Alexandria police officer who was shot in the head during a traffic stop in late February was moved across town to a rehabilitation hospital Thursday to continue his recovery. Officer Peter Laboy, 45, could talk and recognize people and has done some walking, said MedStar Washington Hospital Center spokesman Matt Brock. Laboy was moved to the MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital, and doctors estimated his recovery process would take six to 12 months. Brock said doctors called Laboy's recovery "one in a million." The Alexandria Police Department will host a blood drive in Laboy's honor on March 21.

A seventh Prince George's County teenager has been indicted and charged with murder in November's fatal stabbing at the Woodley Park Metro station, officials said. Greg Whittaker, 19, of Hyattsville, was charged Wednesday with felony murder in the death of 18-year-old Olijawon Griffin, according to the District's U.S. Attorney's Office. Six other teens were indicted on murder charges last month in the incident, which began when a group of nine teenagers allegedly robbed Griffin of his coat and hat.
