Flint airport officer stabbed during attack out of hospital

Donald Scholten, M.D. points to his neck to illustrate where Lt. Jeff Neville was stabbed during a press conference Friday, June 23, 2017, at the Merliss Brown Auditorium, in Flint, Mich.

A spokeswoman for Hurley Medical Center says Lt. Jeff Neville was released Monday.

The Michigan airport officer who was almost stabbed to death by a possible terrorist last week was discharged from the hospital on Monday, a Hurley Medical Center spokeswoman told NBC News.

The attack is being investigated as an act of terrorism, but authorities have no indication at this time that the suspect was involved in a "wider plot", said FBI Special Agent in Charge David Gelios.

Ftouhi reportedly tried to purchase a gun during a show at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Mount Clemens.

Neville's condition has been steadily improving since the attack Wednesday, June 21, and police have credited him with fighting off his attacker despite being stabbed repeatedly.

The person named Amor Ftouhi is a 49-year old man from Tunisia, but living in the Canadian city of Montréal, where he was the part-time caretaker at an apartment building in his city, and he also studied to sell insurance, as per the people knows him said.

During the attack, officials said Ftouhi yelled "Allahu Akbar", which means "God is great" in Arabic.

Doctors have said Neville's 12-inch wound caused significant bleeding but narrowly missed major arteries and a nerve.

Meanwhile, Ftouhi is charged with committing an act of violence at an worldwide airport, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents said.
