An Ohio officer who was shot in the face Tuesday night and critically wounded has reportedly regained consciousness.

Clearcreek Township Police Chief John Terrill said Officer Eric Ney will still require more surgeries, but that he regained consciousness on Wednesday and was on his feet on Thursday, able to brush his teeth, WCPO reports.

Terrill said Ney was hit by one bullet across the face.

Officers were initially called to the home for a domestic. The suspect’s wife called police and told them her husband was ramming her car with an ATV after the couple had had a verbal argument.

The suspect was killed during the incident.
