MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A southern Minnesota police officer who was shot in the head is out of intensive care and spent the weekend in an acute care facility.
That’s according to a CaringBridge page that posts updates on Waseca Officer Arik Matson’s progress.
Matson (pictured) was shot Jan. 6 while responding to a report of a suspicious person in a backyard.
Thirty-seven-year-old Tyler Janovsky is charged with multiple counts, including first-degree attempted murder. He’s scheduled to appear in court today (Tuesday).
A search warrant affidavit says Janovsky “had discussed his desire and intent to commit ‘suicide by cop.'”
