Two weeks after he was shot in the head by a fellow officer at Baltimore police headquarters, Maj. Peter C. Shaulis remains in fair and stable condition at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore, a hospital spokesman said.

Shaulis, 59, director of the department's Central Records Division, underwent 10 hours of surgery at Shock-Trauma to repair damage from the bullet that struck above his right eye.

Lt. Michael H. Waudby, 41, shot in the chest, was discharged Saturday from Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he underwent surgery and 10 days of recuperation.

Their assailant, Officer Calloway F. Hatcher, 56, shot himself in the mouth and died moments after the shootings.

Hatcher had gone to headquarters for a hearing on his suspension following his arrest on sexual child abuse charges. Before the hearing began, he pulled a gun from his waistband and opened fire.

Waudby expressed his sympathy to Hatcher's family and said he was eager to return to work "as soon as possible."
