The Louisville Metro Police officer shot in the head during the mass shooting at Old National Bank earlier this month is making incredible progress, according to his family.
Officer Nick Wilt's family said the medical team is working to get him off the machines and medical equipment, according to an update shared by the Louisville Metro Police Foundation on Facebook Friday.
The next few days will be critical in determining when Wilt will be off the ventilator and other devices, WDRB reports.
His family said he's now able to open his eyes and look at them, however he's still listed in critical condition.
Wilt was one of the first two officers who responded to the shooting in downtown Louisville on the morning of April 10, running right into the danger on what was his fourth shift ever on the force. He was shot in the head and rushed to University of Louisville hospital where he underwent brain surgery.
