OZARK, Ala. (WIAT) — Authorities in Alabama say a police officer who was critically wounded in a shootout is showing signs of improvement.
Ozark’s police chief on Monday said Officer Samuel Yoh still has a long way to go until he’s healed, but he’s making progress. Walker says Yoh was shot six times on Thursday after officers confronted 23-year-old Bradley Cutchens who was walking on the road holding a gun. Police say Cutchens shot at officers and police fired back, killing Cutchens.
Walker says Yoh is coherent and acknowledges friends and family in a non-verbal manner.
Yoh is an 18-year veteran whose wife is expecting a baby girl in February.
