County Sheriff C.W. Phelps said that 72-year-old Thomas R. Lord Sr. was released from a hospital and is recovering at home. Phelps identified Lord as a retired police officer living in Suffolk. The circumstances of the shooting are still unclear, and Phelps said investigators are still trying to determine how Lord was shot. A spokeswoman for the Isle of Wight County Museum said it happened as part of a documentary filming in Heritage Park on Saturday. Phelps said Lord was struck in the shoulder by "a projectile" that doctors removed after he was airlifted to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. "The projectile is still in his possession," Phelps said on Monday afternoon. "The doctors gave it to him after they took it out of his shoulder, but we won't know more about it until we talk to him today." Phelps said the local game warden was not aware of any target shooting or hunting activity in the area at the time of the incident.
