VIDEO: Police, Volunteers Modify Home for Use by California Officer Who Was Shot in the Head

Six months ago, San Bernardino Police Officer Gabriel Garcia was nearly killed when he was shot in the head during a shootout, protecting his city.

Last week, Garcia walked up to his Beaumont home, showing the huge strides he’s made since the shooting.

At his house, Garcia was met with volunteers — many of whom have never met him before — who have been working to make sure his home has everything he’ll need to be able to get around when he is able to return home.

Garcia began to speak a couple months after the shooting, and can now walk with braces and has regained some speech. He is expected to live independently with his five-year-old daughter in the house, NBC Los Angeles reports.

And that's why San Bernardino police and Home Depot are renovating the home.

They’re putting in things like a new handrail, so he can walk upstairs.
