SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The mother of a man who was shot by a Shreveport police officer says he has been released from the hospital but against her wishes.

The mother of 41-year-old Brian Poole thinks he still has a long road to recovery from his wounds and should not have been released from the hospital.

Poole was shot March 31 by Cpl. Jon Briceno after refusing to comply with officers' commands then reaching into the bed of his truck.

Authorities said officers feared Poole was reaching for a gun. 

Briceno was placed on departmental leave the same date.

Poole's attorney says a decision in that case could come sometime next week.
